Manitoba Couple Hopes to Sew Up Marijuana Market in Portage La Prairie

A Manitoba couple is securing plans for a medical marijuana company that will grow, package and ship medical marijuana from a former sewing factory in Portage la Prairie.

“The blueprint comes from personal knowledge in the medical marijuana field, as well as farming background knowledge,” said Joseph Fullmer, co-owner of Medical Manitoba Green.

Fullmer and his partner, Aliza Amihude, have been working with government officials for two years to get the necessary approvals for the facility.
