The country is going to pot

Postby BKKBILL » Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:47 pm

Cough ...cough ... :wink: Imagine a marijuana grow-op in a greenhouse the size of ten Canadian football fields.

That’s what Vancouver-based Aurora Cannabis Inc. is aiming to build in central Alberta, a 600,000-sq.-ft. facility with the capacity to produce up to an estimated 70,000 kg. of cannabis once it begins production, expected by the summer of 2018.

It could become the country’s largest producer, though Ontario-based Aphria Inc. recently bought a swath of land capable of holding a million sq.-ft. of production space, for $6.5 million.

Aurora, currently Alberta’s only licensed producer of medical marijuana, already operates a sprawling 55,200 sq.-ft. facility in Cremona, northwest of Calgary.

But Aurora estimates demand for medical pot alone is growing by 10% each month. The market for licensed buds is only expected to blossom under Ottawa’s plans to legalize recreational use, with legislation expected next spring.

The rest is at ... all-fields
