Grow operations get approved

Lumby council adopted a bylaw Monday that will allow medical marijuana to be grown and processed on industrial land.

A new economic development endeavour is being encouraged to bloom in Lumby.

Council adopted a bylaw Monday that will allow medical marijuana to be grown and processed on industrial land.

“We are the first community in the area to do this so we’re open for business,” said Mayor Kevin Acton.

Acton anticipates the village will market its openness to medical marijuana production.

“If people have a proposal, they should contact us,” he said.

“We have an empty industrial park that needs to be serviced so let’s get going.”
