Tweed Farms, the medical marijuana facility on Conc. 5 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, has Health Canada’s permission to increase its crop tenfold. But the plan is to expand in much smaller increments, as demand dictates, says founder and president of the NOTL facility, Angus Footman.
Tweed Farms is one of three medical marijuana facilities owned by the publicly-traded Canopy Growth Corp. The other two are in Smith Falls and Toronto. The increase in licensed growing space is just for the NOTL operation, which began growing medical marijuana in just 35,000 square feet under glass in June, 2014. It now is licensed to use up to 350,000 square feet for production, making it the largest legal marijuana growing operation in Canada, if not the world.
