MONTREAL (AP) ? Cam Battley is a top executive at one of Canada?s biggest marijuana companies, but he isn?t sticking around to savor the country?s historic pot legalization.
He?s off to Germany on Friday and Australia next week ? a sign of what a leader Canada has become in the global pot industry, and of the reverberations its decision to legalize could have internationally.
?It?s a special moment, not just for Canada, but for the world because my strong conviction is that the rest of the world will follow suit,? said Battley, chief corporate officer at Aurora Cannabis. ?We?re not known as wild and crazy. We?re known for good public policy and I think they will follow our lead.?
