Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB) (OTCQB: ACBFF) recently commented on the Canadian Senate’s historic vote in favor of Bill C-45, which governs the legalization of adult consumer use of cannabis. “We applaud the government’s intelligent and rational public policy, initiating wholesale legislative changes – focused on clearly defined objectives – to reduce the negative impact of prohibition, while establishing a well-regulated system designed to protect public health and public safety. We must also salute and congratulate the advocates, the activists and the passionate who for decades, and often at great personal risk, spoke up, sat in, appealed laws, wrote new ones, ran studies, educated, and changed perceptions towards ending criminal prohibition,” Aurora Cannabis chief executive officer Terry Booth stated in the news release. “With the implementation of Bill C-45 around the corner, we will continue our high-paced execution and deliver innovations, industry-leading customer care, and rapidly growing production capacity to this significant and exciting market. We will bring the Aurora Standard to the adult consumer market, delivering a uniquely satisfying customer experience.”
