CAN (ON): MMJ growers say Hamilton air is too polluted for their cropTwo Hamilton medical marijuana producers say the city's urban air is too polluted for them to successfully grow their product in industrial areas.
Hamilton city councillors want medical marijuana producers to locate their operations on old industrial brownfields instead of farmland and are pondering whether to limit how much marijuana is grown in greenbelt land.
On Tuesday, Beleave and Green Organic Dutchman said that would be "catastrophic" since the air would pollute the product.
If the crop gets even a little polluted, the company has to destroy it, said Ian Wilms, vice chair of Ancaster's Green Organic Dutchman. This is according to the company's Health Canada license.
"We are growing a very sophisticated plant for medicine here," he told city council's planning committee. "Any contaminants or pollutants could cause devastating crop failure, and we could not give this to our patients whatsoever."
