US (MP): City Council clears the way for cannabis grower to come to Jackson

The Jackson City Council has cleared the way for a cannabis cultivator to locate in Ward 2.

On Monday, the council voted unanimously to approve a rezoning request from David Spradlin to bring in the business to 1369 College Hill Dr.

“We searched all over the state for an ideal location. We feel this is due to its proximity to the city of Jackson, but also being on the outskirts, it’s surrounded by undeveloped, open space. So, we felt that it fit,” Spradlin said.

The facility, according to Spradlin, will be a tier-two cultivator. Under the state’s medical cannabis program, that means it can have a canopy of between 5,000 and 15,000 square feet. The canopy, in turn, is the total surface area where the cannabis is cultivated.

He told the council he needed the rezoning because state regulations mandate cultivation facilities be located in areas zoned agricultural or industrial. The property was previously zoned C-3 commercial.
