Green­house seeks med­i­cal mar­i­juana li­cence

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - NI­A­GARA THIS WEEK

GRIMSBY — Pro­pri­etors of a Grimsby green­house are look­ing to get back into the le­gal pot busi­ness.

The own­ers of 585 So­bie Rd. are seek­ing a mi­nor vari­ance that would pave the way for it to ap­ply to Health Canada for a li­cence to grow med­i­cal mar­i­juana.

The prop­erty is no stranger to mar­i­juana, as the green­house was for­merly the site of a medic­i­nal mar­i­juana oper­a­tion be­fore Health Canada re­vamped rules sur­round­ing grow­ing pot for medic­i­nal pur­poses, said Grimsby’s di­rec­tor of plan­ning Michael Sea­man. Un­der the pre­vi­ous rules pa­tients could seek per­mits to grow their own pot, but in re­cent years Health Canada has moved to “in­dus­tri­al­ize” the process, grant­ing li­cences to larger scale grow­ers who can sup­ply pa­tients with medic­i­nal mar­i­juana.
