Cannabis facility planned for former timber mill in Grand Rapids, Minn.
October 18, 2023
A long-shuttered timber mill in northern Minnesota could soon be home to a $67 million cannabis-growing operation that is expected to employ 400 people in Grand Rapids.
HWY35 has received $20 million in public loans and is being headed by Missouri cannabis entrepreneur Jack Mitchell and business partner John Hyduke.
"We will revitalize the 138-acre former Ainsworth site into a high-tech, state-of-the-art, cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility that our communities will be proud of and that will serve as an industry leader for the state of Minnesota," Hyduke said.
