Cresco has agreed to pay for the infrastructure, which includes building roads, installing water, sewer and electric service, said Village Manager Patti Bates.
“We’re looking at a month build that will be followed by some cultivation and we should have product for patients by June of 2018,” Cresco Labs CEO Charles Bachtell said.
>> State regulators defend medical marijuana program despite controversy
Those who were the driving force behind the failed 2015 marijuana legalization issue in Ohio are now backing a plan to put an issue on the November ballot that, if approved by the voters, would make marijuana legal for recreational use.
It’s not clear how that would affect the medical marijuana industry in the state.
“We are a medical cannabis operator and currently we operate only in medical programs,” Bachtell said. “We’ve evaluated Ohio for about a year as a medical program so that’s what we’re focused on right now.”
