Pot Profits Predicted to Soar With Legalization on the Horizon

Booming Alberta company supplies nearly 4,000 customers, and demand is climbing.

Tucked into the rolling hills of Alberta's ranch country, just down the road from the small town of Cremona, lies one of Canada's biggest medical marijuana operations.  

Just over an hour from Calgary, the Aurora Cannabis production facility is set back from the road, and ringed by barbed wire. 

Security is tight, inside and out.

Inside the sprawling 55,000-square-foot facility, key cards are needed to enter and exit each room, and security cameras perched above doors monitor everything that goes on.

Cam Battley, a vice-president of Aurora and a board member of the Cannabis Canada Association, which represents more than half of Canada's 31 licensed medical marijuana growers, says the idea that pot is a medicine has gone mainstream in Canada.

"There are now about 70,000 patients in the medical cannabis system and that number is growing by about 10 per cent per month, so it is growing exceedingly quickly."
