During the Lift Cannabis Expo in Vancouver, the Investing News Network (INN) had the opportunity to catch up with a variety of personalities from the cannabis business world.
In an exclusive interview with INN, Hilary Black, director of patient education and advocacy at Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED) talked about the conversations she has had with the Canadian government in providing guidance for cannabis regulations and policy.
When asked about the reasons investors should be up to date with the outreach the companies they held interests in did with members of the unregulated cannabis community, Black said there is a responsibility to share the resources gained from the upcoming legalization of recreational cannabis.

“As we reach legalization of recreational cannabis there is a tremendous amount of resources that will be generated from the commercialization and legalization of cannabis and there is a huge responsibility to ensure that some of those resources are working in our communities, working in our country,” Black said.
During the Lift Expo, Black participated in a panel evaluating the evolving role of women in the modern cannabis industry. She said as the industry moves more towards a more traditional business aspect there has been fewer roles for women at an executive level or as board members for the public licensed producers (LPs). However, she said during her day to day work she will often go days working entirely with women.
Black also explained just how much of the competitive drive investors have about their stock picks, trickles down into the actual company employees seeking to outdo their competition in the market.
Listen to our conversation with Black and keep a look on INN’s cannabis channel for more audio interviews later this week.
