ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - A $40 million cannabis business park will break ground in Orion Township next week. 

The nearly 300,000 square-foot complex will house growers, processors, secure transporters and safety compliance operators. Grow, Cannabis Marketing says the development will bring hundreds of new jobs to Orion Township and will provide a safe and secure environment for commercial cannabis operations.  

The three buildings on Premiere Drive are expected to be completed by the end of the year. 

The cannabis business park, which is under the umbrella of the Oakland Business Park, is the product of several local investors, attorneys and cannabis industry consultants who have worked with its tenants throughout the entire process.  

To ensure that all tenants have ample power, DTE is building an on-site substation with two 13.2 KV circuits.  

According to GROW, Cannabis Marketing, the development is heavily supported by the Township of Orion and specifically, Township Supervisor Chris Barnett along with members of the board, planning commission and other departments, all of who are expected to attend the groundbreaking at noon Tuesday.  

Michigan voters will decide on a proposal to legalize recreational marijuana in November. The proposal aims to regulate marijuana like alcohol.

But they are ready to sell you some electricity!!!!

 

This brings to mind one of our City Council meetings I attended where they decided it was a good idea to put a cap on home grows electrical usage.

Not in the sense they would cut you off... no, they went one better... the local provider would first send a notice that you have exceeded the set amount.

If you continue to run over, the utility company would report your usage to the proper authorities.

Their excuse/ reason?  Anything over the set amount might tax the grid and cause power outage. 

Okay, maybe so.

 

What are local utilities doing to ramp up the power grids to handle these large warehouse grows? 

Will the costs of revamping the system fall upon the entire service areas tax payers? I'm certain it will.

Tax payers will foot the bill and the warehouse rakes in the profits. 

Nothing new happening here.

I think this would fall in the "sad but true" category .
