Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS:ACBFF) has been working through a corrective wave as we approach the final homestretch in coming months ahead of full recreational legality across the Canadian marketplace. Shares are beginning to find some traction on a technical level, and it’s not hard to see why fresh capital might be moving in. The company is now sitting on over $350M in cash and has plenty of options to continue its aggressive investment and expansion, which is quite appropriate given the high ROI context of the cannabis space at present.
On that note, the company just announced that it has entered into an agreement to become a medical cannabis supplier to Shoppers Drug Mart. According to the release, “Subject to Health Canada’s approval of Shoppers Drug Mart’s application to be a licensed producer, under the terms of the agreement the Company will supply Shoppers Drug Mart (“Shoppers”) with Aurora branded medical cannabis products. It is expected the products will be sold online, as Canadian regulations currently restrict the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.”
