Aurora says the result for the quarter is up from $11.7 million in the same quarter a year ago and better than the $29.7 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30.

The increase was driven by the start of the adult consumer use market in Canada in October and shipments of medical cannabis to Aurora’s base of roughly 71,000 patients in Canada.
