New Mexico tribe puts up land for $160M medicinal greenhouse

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) ó On a patch of tribal land in western New Mexico, a company plans to build a $160 million state-of-the-art greenhouse for researching and growing medicinal plants, including marijuana.

Bright Green Group of Companies is partnering with Acoma Pueblo on what would be the nationís largest commercial growing operation, by far dwarfing medical marijuana greenhouses already planned in Massachusetts, Illinois and California.

Plans call for Bright Greenís greenhouse and its associated research facility to eventually cover nearly 6 million square feet, or about 100 football fields. Officials at the Delaware-based company say they would have room for as many as 40 million medicinal plants, from marijuana to pennywort and Indian ginseng.

While marijuana is expected to make up a significant portion of the operation, supporters of the project say the business plan was originally designed to sustain itself by producing oils used for various remedies already popular in the homeopathic world.

1. More power to them!

Great possibilities!

One of my native students invited me to Acoma on a couple of occasions (feast days), and other things got in the way. I still regret not being able to go.

This is wonderful news.
