However, the companies said Thursday that Canopy's acquisition of NY-based Acreage Holdings is contingent upon cannabis production and sales becoming legal at a federal level.

Today we announce a complex transaction with a simple objective.

Under the deal, Acreage shareholders will receive an immediate payment of approximately US$2.55 per subordinate voting share or US$300 million.

Plus Acreage boasts a roster of high profile backers, like former House Speaker John Boehner and Bill Weld, the former Governor of MA and a Republican Presidential challenger to Trump, who Borchardt said have "got people there in D.C." who see where the industry is heading. By combining Acreage's management team, licenses and assets with Canopy Growth's intellectual property and brands, there will be tremendous value creation for both companies' shareholders. "At the point when the privilege is practiced approaching Canopy Growth's profound assets will empower us to improve, create and convey quality cannabis marks over the USA also, keep extending our USA impression".

However, once the deal is made, it will give Canopy Growth the right to all the products of Acreage Holdings.

The deal in which Canopy Growth will acquire Acreage Holdings once cannabis is legal in America implies that the legalization will happen sooner than we think.

At the time, Linton called it "rocket fuel" for Canopy's global ambitions as more markets legalize cannabis around the world.
