US (NJ): New cultivation may come to Passaic

If all goes according to plan, the city will have its first cannabis cultivator within a year.

It's not a done deal yet, said Luxxe Green owner and CEO Viviana Lamm. She said whether the deal goes through will depend on a number of factors, such as obtaining local building and zoning approvals, plus the actual construction. She said it may take between three and 12 months to get up and running.

The plan calls for the repurposing of industrial space on Eighth Street to grow cannabis indoors. Luxxe is in the design and construction phase, Lamm said.

The marijuana will be grown in a mix of soil and hydroponic growing methods, and Lamm said she expects to initially provide 10,000 square feet of interior farm space.

"It's tricky because you have to eliminate things like mold spores," she said.
