For CEO Anthony Wile Canada’s regulated medical cannabis industry provides example for other countries

TG Daily, Dec. 7, 2018

There is a growing list of countries around the world, such as Peru, Spain, South Africa and Colombia, that have begun to allow marijuana to play a more open and accepted role in society, either by decriminalizing personal use, or limiting the enforcement of the laws surrounding it. … The Canadian-based PharmaCielo Ltd., a medical cannabis company with operations in Colombia, a country that has also modified its laws with respect to medical cannabis, aims to become a leading supplier of naturally grown and processed, standardized medicinal-grade cannabis oil extracts. The company chose to grow its product in Colombia due to the outstanding climatic conditions in the country, as well as its clear and legal framework for medical cannabis licensing. PharmaCielo’s Canadian-Colombian CEO is Anthony Wile; Wile believes that Canada can be an example for the world regarding how the medicinal cannabis industry can be regulated and supervised, even as it continues to modify the rules. “We believe Colombian government officials can learn from Canada’s experience,” says Wile, “and also from their ability to modify regulations as experience moves us forward. The goal is to maximize the growth of the industry in a safe and responsible way, as a model for others.”
