Global Cannabis Innovators Corp. (GCI) congratulates the Government of Canada on being the first industrialized nation to legalizing cannabis in less than one month’s time. GCI also acknowledges the individuals who have made this milestone possible
TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2018 / Legalization of cannabis is a historic accomplishment for Canada – and it positions the country to be a global leader in a rapidly growing industry. Spending on legal cannabis worldwide is expected to reach $57 billion (USD) by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and its research partner BDS Analytics.
“This landmark decision is not about the sudden legitimacy of cannabis, it’s about access,” said Sean Conacher, CEO of GCI. “Now individuals will be able to decide for themselves if the benefits of cannabis enhance their lives or can be part of a healing protocol – that’s what we’re excited about.”
With the 90-year prohibition of cannabis in Canada coming to an end soon, GCI not only salutes the Canadian government for its progressive policymaking, it recognizes the thousands of Canadians who have endured discrimination, raids and arrests to keep the cannabis movement alive in this country. “Our hats are off to the many early adopters and advocates who persevered to keep the industry moving forward,” said Conacher. “The government pushed it across the finish line, but these people got us into the race to begin with.”
