PORTAGE, Mich. — A West Michigan couple is investing 10 million dollars in a marijuana business that will span across two counties.

James Brayton, and Kim Owsiany, are calling their new venture ‘Green Eden.”

One grow operation will be in portage, with up to 15,000 plants.

They have already broke ground in Calhoun County, with another 10,000.

They’re a part of 33 similar businesses in Kalamazoo County approved by local government.

The couple is hoping to break ground in Portage before the end of the year, and the company could be open by April or May of 2019.

    That’s great! Industrial hemp can literally do everything that products derived from oil/petroleum can do, but without having to wage wars in the Middle East for it. Legalization is literally going to save lives!

    Marijuana that is used for smoking is grown in small amounts, maybe 80 to 100 plants at the most, otherwise it’s too difficult to give it the care it needs to be of a quality that is worth smoking.

    Growing that many plants means they’re growing industrial hemp which doesn’t have anything to do with getting anyone high. They’re growing textiles, more or less.
