Canadian cannabis company Canopy is positioning itself to be a prime mover in the U.S. legal marijuana market, last week announcing an agreement to acquire Acreage Holdings in a deal valued at $3.4 billion.

The deal, the first between two cannabis companies on either side of the U.S.-Canada border, gives Canopy the right to acquire 100 percent of New York-based Acreage when marijuana is legalized on a federal level by the U.S. government. The agreement can be called off if that does not occur within 90 months of the cash payment, which would be sometime in 2027.
