Legalization in Canada, how are things there?

Canada’s new Marijuana for Medical Purposes (MMRP) regulations will replace an existing out-of-date system and potentially open the door to publicly traded cannabis producers.
The new law will let doctors, nurses, dentists, and other medical professionals write medical declarations for patients to use marijuana for many types of ailments without the lengthy questionnaires and red tape associated with the prior system.

Starting in April, medical marijuana patients in Canada are barred from growing their own medicine thanks to a law passed last year. All cannabis has to be produced from a licensed supplier.

Under the new law, medicinal cannabis users will not be able to produce their own marijuana but instead must buy through a limited network of production and distribution companies.`

Furthermore, the new system permits licensed producers to set their prices without any government restrictions, raising concerns for patients.

Canada’s medical marijuana market is expected to grow from $179 million to $1.34 billion over the next ten years, according to Health Canada, with the patient population jumping from 41,384 to 308,755. With only 13 licensed producers approved to date, investors in OrganiGram have a unique opportunity to capitalize on the growing demand at a very early stage for the industry.

The company also has first-mover advantage as one of only 13 licensed producers approved by Health Canada to date. Often times, the first entrants into an industry can gain control of resources that followers may not be able to match. Canadian medical marijuana patients are a prime example, since they would likely be hesitant to switch providers after establishing a relationship.

OrganiGram plans to expand its total production square footage from 115,000 in 2015 to 235,000 by 2016, driving revenue from $2.2 million to $88 million and before-tax profits from to $15 million to $42 million, according to Mr. Arsenault. With Canada’s patient population expected to rise from 41,384 to 308,755 over the next ten years, these estimates could move even higher.

If Canada ultimately decides to legalize recreational marijuana, the company would also be well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand with its large production footprint, quality control processes, and existing relationship with the government.

Being the only Licensed Producer east of Ontario and over 700 miles from of any other LP's could also prove beneficial.

Moving forward, management aims to ramp up sales from 2,800 customers generating $10.7 million in revenue and $3.1 million in profit in 2015 to nearly 17,000 customers generating $63.2 million in revenue and $33 million in profit by 2018. These figures appear to be reasonable given that the patient population is expected to bloom to over 300,000 by 2024, according to Health Canada.

But that isn't gonna happen...contrary to what the butwangers of the planet believe who think all of this will simply be opened up to all to play from home unrestricted. The Gov't sees the cash to be made, knows there's a lot of $$$ being made they can tap into, (IMO), and will set themselves up well when it comes to weed. As a concession...as they have done with cigarettes, alcohol, etc. we het "legalization".

If folks can't see this is how it will all go, they simply haven't been paying attention.

The more drug money they taste the harder it will be to cleanse their palette. Kinda like a bunch of us. LOL

So many people falling for the Trudeau ruse.

Granted, I'll eat my hat if he actually does legalize, but right now I would give 10-1 it's just a vote ploy.

This whole thread would make more sense in the Canadian forum....

Sorry to get under your skin.

I placed it here to consolidate the info on legalization gone bad.
There are many here so I thought it to be an appropriate place.
Please start a similar topic in the Canada forum if you like, but I have no interest there, other than it is a good example of what can happen when Govt. meets cannabis $$$$$$!

Not even close muchacho.

The way I worded it sounded a little asshat-ish, but it wasen't my intention.

I merely suggested it because it might have gotten more response there, and less rambling stoner replies. The thread title at least, seemed to invite opinions on the nature of the goings on up here, such as the injunction...
