Google will stop selling e-cigarettes, a new legal cannabis company that it bought for $1.3 billion, according to a document seen by Reuters.
The move was part of a broader effort to push for more stringent laws on the drug, including a crackdown on online sales.
The deal, expected to close in the second quarter of this year, comes as the cannabis industry has surged in popularity in the U.S. and abroad.
“We are committed to making marijuana a regulated product for the benefit of patients and caregivers and are committed in our regulatory plan to do so,” Google said in a statement.
In December, the company signed a deal to sell its brand-name product, VaporCloud, to Amazon for $2 billion.
That deal was approved by the Federal Trade Commission, which regulates online sales of marijuana.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google bought the e-cigarette company in September, making it the first major tech company to buy a cannabis-focused company.
It also bought a medical marijuana producer in Colorado, which has more than 3,000 dispensaries.
The deal is also a significant move for Google, which last year announced it was planning to shut down its cannabis business.
The company has been the subject of scrutiny in recent years for its handling of the company’s search results, and last month Google CEO Sundar Pichai said he was moving to “close the gap” between Google and other technology companies.
