Far be it for me to stand up for Canopy Growth Corp (WEED.T), a company that has only succeeded in one thing in its entire existence; convincing folks to buy its stock despite never having done anything else right. In recent quarters, and through three CEOs, Canopy has been pretty darn forthright that it was going to lose money for a while because it was broken.
Because this story is about The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD.T) and cannabis investors bear grudges, the vast majority of people reading it will already be saying the words, “Fuck Parry, you’ll pump anything for money.”

By “nitty-gritty” we mean – numbers.
Four weeks ago, Heritage released its Q1, 2020 financials.
Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) got a new President and CEO today in Beena Goldenberg, former chief executive officer of Hain-Celestial Canada, and a bona fide pro in the natural and plant-based consumer packaged goods business. This would appear to be a good hire for a company that already has a great reputation for quality products in an industry where the only way to differentiate yourself is being absurdly cheap or absurdly good. She’s picked a fine time to jump in; the company has already done some hard work in turning its fortunes around, and (to me) looks like its found a nice bottom to launch off.
There’s no doubt a lot of people invest in a sector by just plopping their dough behind whichever company is the biggest, or the one

A quick scan of headlines today would tell a harrowing story that Heritage Cannabis (CANN.C) was in big trouble and had lost $13 million and pandemonium had broken loose, and dogs and cats were going to be living together any time now.

Like the old Twilight Zone episode where helpful aliens leave behind a book called ‘To Serve Man’, only for us to find out later it’s a cookbook, investors have been welcomed and fattened up nicely by alpha predators as they unwittingly await their slaughter, not realizing that, they’re at the predator’s table because they’re the main course.
