Now that the dust has settled after Canada’s big announcement last week regarding the legalization bill for cannabis, what do the experts think?
The news of the bill affects anyone within an arm’s length of the marijuana industry, and the reviews from the general community have been mixed. Marijuana.com interviewed some heavy hitters to get their take on the future of Canadian.
We begin with the president of the largest cannabis producer in the world, Mark Zekulin from Canopy Growth Corporation.
“I think it’s a great day overall. Not surprisingly, there’s a big focus on drug impaired driving and making sure that we have the right tools in place, that’s a very positive step.” Zekulin added that he is also happy that cultivation will continue to be regulated at the federal level.
There’s a good chance that Canopy will have some more competition coming, due to Health Canada’s decision to expedite the licensing process and allow smaller producers to join the licensed cultivation industry. “I think that’s great. The market is going to get a lot bigger. We welcome as many producers as makes sense in a controlled, regulated environment.”
