Canada: Regulations changing for greenhouse medical marijuana production
To be licensed to grow medical marijuana, the greenhouse structure must meet strict security standards to prevent unauthorized access. This includes physical barriers, security screen/steel bars on all openings, 24 hour video surveillance and security sensors on glazing panels. In addition to security, air filtration is required to ensure that pollen, odors and other particles do not escape.
According to their blog, GGS Structures already has the capabilities to meet these requirements, as they have manufactured robust research greenhouse facilities with similar requirements alongside their sister company, JGS. Due to these strict new requirements the government will be enforcing next year, this change is a potentially lucrative opportunity for commercial growers who decide to begin growing medical marijuana. On the other hand, growers may need to initially tread lightly to ensure they are aware of all the new regulations they need to follow in order to successfully grow this crop long term.
