VANCOUVER, Aug. 2, 2019 /CNW/ - CannaChiefs Media retracts its press release issued on August 1, 2019 (the "Press Release") regarding its contest to help find Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy") a new CEO. CannaChiefs launched the contest and issued the Press Release without Canopy's knowledge, consent or approval. As CannaChiefs is independently in the process of preparing its annual "Top 50 Most Influential Canna Chief" honors for 2020, CannaChiefs is excited to see who may fill the positions occupied by our longstanding top Canna Chiefs, Bruce Linton and Mark Zukelin. CannaChiefs clarifies that Canopy is in no way associated or affiliated with CannaChiefs or with CannaChief's contest, which has ceased effective immediately.
Hanni Monk, Chief Editor at CannaChiefs Media said, "We have learned a valuable lesson and want to issue a formal apology to Canopy Growth on behalf of the entire Canna Chiefs Editorial team" he added, "In no way did we intend to deceive anyone into thinking Canopy Growth had anything to do with our contest and we will put much more thought and caution into any future campaigns."
