A plan to bring a medical marijuana growing facility to Eastman Business Park has been submitted.
Columbia Care is among the applicants asking the state for a permit to grow marijuana.
If approved, the company would grow, process, and distribute medical marijuana. The director of the Eastman Business Park says the facility has the security and space to make it an ideal fit and the plan could create up to 250 jobs. But does it mean we’re a step closer to recreational marijuana being legalized in New York?
“I think of states like Colorado where they have seen a significant increase in marijuana use since the legalization,” says Chris Taylor.
