Standard Wellness approved to build medical marijuana cultivation facility in desolate, empty field. 

“...Gibsonburg officials say this announcement is a testament to what they call the ‘Gibsonburg way.’ That’s pride in the community, pride in yourself while having a chip on your shoulder. In this case it paid off.

Right now it’s an empty field on Commerce Drive near County Road 66. On it sits a lonely piece of construction equipment. But by next September you'll see a 52,000 square foot building growing medical marijuana.”
