Bernardston issues letter of support for indoor medical marijuana facility

BERNARDSTON — The Bernardston Board of Selectmen has agreed to issue a letter of support for a medical marijuana farm in town.

The letter backs allowing Greenfield-based nonprofit organization Happy Valley Compassion Center to continue with the state licensing process to operate an indoor facility here.

Jim Counihan, Patrick Cloney and Tim Van Epps evaluated numerous locations throughout the state and settled on Bernardston because it’s a right-to-farm community and most likely has experienced growers living in the area who will want to pursue employment opportunities with the organization. The goal is to provide anywhere from 12 to 24 local farmers with a job in an up-and-coming industry, a living wage and a benefits package.
