The Proposed Facility In West Pottsgrove Would Grow The Plants, Remove The Thc And Cbd, The Chemicals Of Medical Use.

In this Jan. 31 photo, agriculture regulators from seven different <a href=colorado marijuana states and Guam tour a Denver marijuana growing warehouse on a tour organized by the Colorado Department of Agriculture in Denver.’ /> To apply, Morgan said his company must pay a $10,000 application fee, as well as a $200,000 cost if the license is approved. The license is good for one year and costs $30,000 to renew every year. But the potential returns are significant given that medical marijuana is anticipated to be a $1 billion a year business in Pennsylvania in five years. Morgan said the regulations are strict, with every seed being tracked by bar code and extensive record keeping required for parts of the plant not used in processing. The proposed facility in West Pottsgrove would grow the plants, remove the THC and CBD, the chemicals of medical use. It would not be one of the 27 dispensaries planned in Pennsylvania. The chemicals would be processed at the site into pills, lotions or ointments, said Morgan. He said he is hopeful his company will win a permit given that his partners have experience with similar facilities in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Massachusetts. In the meantime, if approved, the West Pottsgrove facility would slowly amp up, starting in a temporary growing building, particularly given that there may be as few as 3,000 citizens enrolled statewide in the first year, Morgan said.
