Aurora Cannabis announced that the company has officially cut a little more than 200 positions as it reduces production at its flagship marijuana greenhouse in Edmonton, Alberta, to just a quarter of its capacity. Separately, the company’s chief science officer, Jonathan Page, is also leaving. The fresh round of layoffs comes weeks after the company paused operations “indefinitely” at its huge greenhouse in Medicine Hat, Alberta, to save money and cope with an industrywide supply glut. Aurora CEO Miguel Martin said the company’s recent moves are part of management’s plan “to evolve our operations network to be more aligned to sales trends and more dynamic in its ability to meet the evolving needs of the consumer.”
