US (FL): Supervisors told MMJ grower that eliminating smell from cultivation is no. 1 priority

The Lafayette County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, February 21, told a representative of Good Day Farm, a medical cannabis growing facility, that eliminating the smell coming from their plant must be a No. 1 priority after dozens of nearby residents complained about the aroma wafting into their neighborhoods.

Building Official Joel Hollowell told the Board that on November 18 his office received an email from a resident in the Oxmoor Subdivision claiming that they could often smell the cannabis at their home. “This would correspond with the time that their first crop was reaching maturity and being harvested,” Hollowell said.

By the end of the day on the 18th, Hollowell said another seven people emailed to complain about the odor. Since then, Hollowell said he has received 18 emails and several phone calls from residents in Oxmoor, Brairwood, Whitetail, Northpointe, and other neighborhoods close to the Lafayette County Industrial Park where Good Day Farm is located.

However, Hollowell was quick to point out that no one complained about the business or the medical cannabis program.
