An Abandoned Elementary School Could Become a Cannabis Grow

An Abandoned Elementary School Could Become a Cannabis Grow

 

An old school building in Michigan could soon be turned into something very unlikely: a cannabis grow.

 

According to M Live, East Jackson Community Schools in Michigan may sell an old school building to developers who plan to start a cannabis grow inside. The Board of Education originally let an offer from the group expire, but are now reconsidering.

 

High Times confirms that the school district was originally concerned about the message turning the school into a grow would send students. However, they have since decided that as long as the building can only ever be a grow, not a dispensary, it is OK. They even made the developers sign an agreement about that condition.

 

“This locks in this use now and forever, regardless of changes in legislation or ordinances or owners,” Superintendent Steve Doerr said. “No sale or dispensing of marijuana—medical or otherwise—will be allowed there ever.”

 

It looks like this school building is likely to be repurposed for the growing of cannabis, something most local school officials never thought they’d be saying.
