Proposed marijuana provisional facility under review in Benton Harbor
BENTON HARBOR, Mich.--- Nobo, a Colorado based marijuana company, has proposed a bringing a medical marijuana provisional facility to Benton Harbor. Nobo is one of 11 marijuana companies vying for four provisional licenses.
NoBo already has two licenses for a cultivation and extraction facility currently under construction on Alreco Avenue. If Nobo is awarded a provisional license, it would make its property on Water Street the home of its Michigan headquarters.
"Part of the reason that we picked that property is because it’s in an opportunity zone and we felt that Benton Harbor was a great place that needed tax revenue from the emerging cannabis business," said Alan Bonsett, CEO of Nobo. "So, that’s how we chose that particular site based on the good that we could do in the community."
Benton Harbor's City Commission will choose who gets awarded the provisional licenses at a meeting next week.
