Hexo Corp. (TSX:HEXO). Down 31 cents, or 15.20 per cent, to $1.73. Hexo Corp.'s chief executive said he's seen a "price war" take shape over the last five months that could cause "significant" damage to Canada's cannabis industry. Charlie Bowman says there are many smaller and independent pot retailers that are "bleeding" because of the higher number of rivals and their tendency to undercut one another. He said the industry's pricing troubles have been compounded by the illicit market, which Bowman noticed had "fantastic" growth this year, challenging licensed cannabis producers. The Gatineau, Que.-based cannabis company's net revenues for the second quarter of the company's financial year were $24.2 million, down 54 per cent from a year earlier and down 32 per cent from the previous quarter.
