Medical Marijuana Producer Eyeing Windsor Property

A producer of medical marijuana could be coming to Windsor.

E.C Green Naturals Inc. has filed a application for a site plan approval for the former Bowlero Property at 675 Tecumseh Rd. West in Windsor to grow medical marijuana.

Speaking on AM800's the Lynn Martin Show, Ward 3 Councillor Rino Bortolin says he was surprised to learn the property was actually zoned manufacturing and would allow for this type of establishment.

"I have heard different rumours about different investments and developments that could possibly be going into the location," he says. "I was surprised to find out that the property is zoned for manufacturing so this type of endeavour, growing cannabis would fall under a manufacturing zoning category."

He believes the location would be better zoned for commercial, retail or residential development.

If approved, it would be the first medical marijuana grow op within Windsor city limits.

Bortolin says there is still a process to follow before the operation would be approved and operational.
