Maliseet First Nation Looks to Grow Medical Marijuana

The Maliseet First Nation in New Brunswick is working with an American company to build a medical marijuana research and treatment facility.

The X-Change Corporation said the First Nation community will help the company develop a compound covering up to 400 hectares of first nation land.

The group said in the initial phase four hectares of land will be used to grow marijuana.

It said the farming part of the operation could eventually grow to also include hemp and cover more than 150 hectares. The plan also includes a hospital, research laboratory and a treatment centre with accommodations for patients.

So far X-change is not releasing the financial details of the deal.

In a press release, it said the project is still in the planning stages.

    You got to love capitalism. We fight for reforms without the financial support from those that will now spend millions to capitalize on our efforts.

    I’m starting to get sick with these companies / individuals (re: Rebligati) jumping the gun. Approval hasn’t even made it past the first part of the application review.
