CANADA: Two new medical marijuana operations could bookend the Harbour City.
B.C.-based Wildflower Marijuana Inc. is applying to Health Canada to license its two medical marijuana production facilities in the Nanaimo region.
If approved, it says it would become the largest grower and distributor in the country with 150,000 square feet of growing space on either end of the city. This would also be its first grow operation.
According to William MacLean, Wildflower Marijuana chief executive officer, the company looked across Canada for a production site and the Nanaimo area’s temperate and moderate climate is “ideal” for growing the drug. He says the company is aiming to have the lowest carbon footprint in the industry and environment plays a large factor in that.
