US (LA): State MMJ grower doubles growing capacity

Louisiana's largest medical cannabis producer is doubling its cannabis growing space in 2023, citing projections for higher demand and new laws it believes have streamlined regulations. Good Day Farm, the private partner of the LSU AgCenter, is adding 40,000 square feet of cultivation capacity at its 225,000-square-foot mega facility in Ruston.

"With the significant improvements made to the medical cannabis program by the Legislature, Good Day Farm Louisiana anticipated patient count and demand would eventually increase, so we expanded into a 225,000-square-foot facility in Ruston (in 2021) with over 220 employees," said David Kirsch, Good Day Farm's vice president of Ruston operations, in a statement to USA Today Network.

"Planning for the highest forecasted patient needs, we have over 40,000 square feet of operational indoor gardens with over 40,000 square feet of additional indoor gardens expected to be operational by the second quarter of 2023," Kirsch said.

The LSU AgCenter and Southern AgCenter and their private partners are the only growers who can legally cultivate cannabis in Louisiana's medical cannabis program.
