Green Thumb Industries Inc. , will be building a modern cannabis campus on the site of a former federal prison in Warwick, New York.
The Mid-Orange Correctional Facility was once a federal prison that held men convicted of drug offenses and other crimes. The facility was targeted for closure in 2011 as part of former
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s prison closing program.
The new project aims to revitalize the community and generate hundreds of jobs.
On September 9 the company hosted a groundbreaking ceremony in Warwick that was attended by local and regional authorities including a business leader in the cannabis industry, Ben Kovler, founder and CEO of Green Thumb Industries.
“Breaking ground on Green Thumb’s newest Warwick facility is a tremendous milestone for us. Today is an example of the next great American growth story in action. This site used to be a federal prison that incarcerated individuals targeted by cannabis prohibition. Now it will become an economic hub that manufactures high-quality cannabis products, creates hundreds of new jobs, and contributes positively to the local community,” Kovler said.
