A 130-acre business park aiming to be the largest medical marijuana industrial center east of the Mississippi River is well on its way to becoming operational in the second quarter of 2018, another sign that the state’s MMJ industry is thriving.

The venture, known as Harvest Park, will be located in Windsor Township, just south of the state Capitol in Lansing.

So far, 63 acres on 10 lots have been sold to licensed growers, processors or other businesses, Mlive.com reported.

Lots for the next 67 acres are currently for sale, according to Mlive.com.

“We expected to open phase two sometime within the second quarter of 2018, and the response has far exceeded our expectations,” Managing Director Jeff Donahue said in a news release.

He added that the company’s goal is for Harvest Park to become “the epicenter” of the state’s MMJ industry.

Michigan, long home to a widespread MMJ program that services more than 200,000 registered patients, is also poised to legalize recreational later this year if a proposed ballot measure succeeds in November.

That could make the state a cannabis industry hub in the Midwest.
