I Expect Canada to Legalize Recreational Cannabis in the spring of 2017

Eight U.S. states just voted to legalize medical or recreational cannabis. That is great news for the North American cannabis market.

Canopy Going International with $7.2 Million Acqusition of German Cannabis Distributor

Canada’s cannabis friendly legal and regulatory environment is helping its cannabis companies establish first mover advantages in international markets. Case in point – Canopy Growth Corp (CGC), Canada’s largest medical marijuana company, just purchased MedCann, a German medical marijuana distributor for $7.2 million. Germany is the largest economy in Europe. Although Germany legalized medical marijuana in 2005, actual cannabis production is still illegal – all cannabis products must be cultivated outside of Germany and imported into the country. That creates a great opportunity for Canopy to fill the gap. The acquisition should give Canopy a nice revenue jolt but more importantly a platform to expand its footprint across Europe.

I view the partnership as a win for both sides.
