John Fowler helps us to manage expectations and think positively on the future of the Legal Cannabis Market: “We had an election over the summer, and our new Premier decided that it was better to allow small or medium-sized businesses access to the market. What does that mean? We’re not going to have stores until April. In the short term, it doesn’t look great. But in the long run, that means for the next 100 years after April, we get that private retail and I think that’s pretty exciting.”
John Fowler: My name is John Fowler, J-O-H-N F-O-W-L-E-R. I am the President of the Supreme Cannabis Company.
Seth Adler: Supreme Cannabis Company, happy Legalization Day, here in sunny Toronto.
John Fowler: Thank you very much. I am glad you come up to Canada and join us.
Seth Adler: Of course, of course. What I'd love to do is it's been a while since you and I spoke. It might give us great context to kind of understand the lift, if you will, from where we were to where we are. Legalization Day, would say that everything is perfect, everything is set, everything's in place, everything's wonderful?
John Fowler: Absolutely not, but it's as we expected. I think this is a progress, right.
Seth Adler: Yeah. Okay.
John Fowler: Nothing in life is linear.
Seth Adler: Yeah.
John Fowler: We've got to look at what this means globally, which is Canada made a choice to do something that no country of our size has decided to do, and that's properly regulate cannabis for adult consumers.
Seth Adler: Mm-hmm (affirmative).
John Fowler: Are there another podcast we could do talking about all the things we could do differently? Sure.
Seth Adler: Yeah.
John Fowler: But that doesn't take away from the fact that we did something pretty special last night at midnight-
Seth Adler: Yep.
John Fowler: And that's a game changer for Canadians, that's a game changer for Canadian entrepreneurs, and I think for the world. I think we're going to see the world move a lot faster than many people anticipate.
