Media Interviews

November 24, 2018 –

The infamous Colombian “drug lord” of the past has been replaced by the savvy and respected businessman of the future. Anthony Wile is the Canadian born and bred entrepreneur, business strategist, author and global market investor who also is the prescient chief executive of Toronto-based PharmaCielo Ltd. Five years ago, at the same time as he completed his book, “Financial Freedom,” he determined that legalized cannabis was on the cusp of explosive global growth. From that recognition, he took the lead in reshaping Colombia’s position in the marketplace. Having done substantial business in Colombia, Anthony Wile recognized that the Latin American nation was in an ideal position to capitalize on the cannabis market, given a climate that, in every respect, was ideal. In addition to the ideal, year-round growing conditions in this equatorial country, a forward-thinking new government was in place to set the right direction from a regulatory, economic and business perspective.
