A Canadian farming company is teaming with Akwesasne, Ont.-based consultants to possibly grow medical marijuana in Bombay. New York in 18 months will allow medical marijuana on a very tight basis under the Compassionate Care Act. They will license five growers that can each operate four dispensaries. Growing must be done indoors in a secured facility.

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, Dec 1.
