SMITHS FALLS, ON, June 20, 2018 /CNW/ - There are no words to describe and acknowledge this historic moment in Canada.
We would like to commend the fearless advocates who spent years building momentum for change.
The patients and researchers who drove awareness of the power of the cannabis plant.
The elected officials who showed courage in advancing a dialogue for change, based on pragmatism but also a vision for something better.
The public service who navigated and ultimately built a complex regulatory landscape with thoughtfulness and professionalism.
To all Canadians who participated in turning an idea into reality, this is your moment to celebrate.
So, there were a few words after all.
From our family of companies and brands, here's to the next chapter of growth.
