    Comparing base salaries of CEOs doesn’t tell much about their compensation. Tilray’s reported total compensation for the CEO in 2018 was $31.8 million but 97% of that was in stock options. Also, without adjusting for company revenue size meaningful comparisons cannot be made. Executive compensation data from the BLS is worthless.
