US (PA): Laying groundwork for Lackawanna based facility

After delays and a request for a deadline extension, excavators and a big bulldozer are finally laying the groundwork for Lackawanna County’s second medical cannabis grower.

On a rainy morning last week, crews with KW Enterprises of Milton moved earth on a 19-acre parcel off Life Science Drive in Scott Technology Park.

PharmaCann Penn Plant LLC, the Chicago-based medical cannabis company, won a permit to build a $15 million grower/processor facility there, though the project has suffered significant delays and blew past its January operational deadline without putting a shovel in the ground.

A state Health Department spokesman said PharmaCann’s submission for a deadline extension is still under review, however, site prep appears to be all systems go.
