Canadian medical marijuana producer Canopy Growth said its joint venture Spectrum Cannabis has been licensed to grow pot in Denmark for sale throughout the European Union. In a statement, the company hailed as a "major milestone" what it called the "first federal production licence issued to a Canadian cannabis producer anywhere in the European Union." With the announcement, Denmark also joins the Netherlands as the only two EU countries with federal permits to grow medical cannabis. Earlier this month, Canopy announced the joint venture with hemp producer Danish Cannabis to establish a 40,000 square metre facility in Odense.
