CAN (ON): Stoney Creek based cannabis facility cancelled

A medical marijuana company has abandoned plans to grow pot in a popular indoor sports facility in Stoney Creek less than a year after local soccer players got the boot.

Area soccer clubs were caught off-guard last year when a consortium bought the Players Paradise building on Seaman Street with plans to convert it to pot production by Green Relief Inc., a Flamborough-based marijuana grower specializing in aquaponics.

Then-CEO Warren Bravo said the expansion would create up to 100 local jobs and offered $10,000 in relocation help for the Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer Club after the building closed last October.

But now, the building is up for lease again and Green Relief has a new CEO who says the company has "pivoted its focus" from cultivation.
