    April 1 (Reuters) - U.S. marijuana company Cresco Labs Inc

year, becoming one of the 10 U.S states to do so, prompting
investors to show more interest in the budding cannabis sector.
    Origin House shareholders will receive 0.8428 shares of
Cresco Labs for each share, or $C12.68 per share.
    With this deal, Chicago-based Cresco Labs will broaden its
presence to over 725 dispensaries across United
    Origin House delivers over 50 cannabis brands to more than
500 dispensaries in California, the companies said.
