If true, it would be the first cross-border deal involving a Canadian marijuana licensed company buying a non-hemp U.S. multistate operator.
For example, the TSX prohibits companies listed on its exchange from having cannabis assets in countries where marijuana is federally illegal, such as the United States.
Canopy, based in Smiths Falls, Ontario, trades on both the New York Stock Exchange (CGC) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (WEED).
Acreage trades as ACRG.U on the Canadian Securities Exchange, where the TSX rule does not apply.
Acreage was trading $2 higher at the end of trading April 17 compared with the previous close.
Neither Acreage nor Canopy could be reached immediately for comment.
