FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Casa Grande's Sidewinder Dairy is getting into the medical marijuana business.
The Casa Grande Dispatch reports the Pinal County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to permit Sidewinder Dairy to grow medical pot in an enclosed 9,650-square-foot facility.
Planning and zoning officials recommended the indoor grow rather than the initially proposed outdoor operation, which garnered opposition from people concerned about access for children and criminals.
The permit is subject to review in a year. Marijuana grown at the site is slated to go to a dispensary in Mesa.
Attorney Jordan Rose is representing Sidewinder Dairy, and says security measures, including panic buttons and high-resolution video recording, will be in place at the facility.
