Did Massachusetts residents understand the difficulty of preventing Big Marijuana in their neighborhoods when they voted to legalize in 2016? If marijuana industry gets its way in the Bay State, the biggest cannabis cultivation and processing plant in the United States will be built in Charlton, a small town in Worcester County.
Valley Green Grow wishes to build a 1 million square foot facility to grow cannabis and manufacture cannabis products. The North Andover company seeks approval from the Charlton Planning Board for its site plan and definitive subdivision plan. Its eyes are on converting Charlton Orchards, 44 Old Worcester Road, into this project.

Why on earth would a budtender, an extremely passionate supporter and user of marijuana ever write an article for PopPot?

TV Ads for Other States Promote Deception
When Oregon had a ballot to legalize marijuana in 2014, King County Sheriff John Urquhart appeared on TV ads claiming that legalization hadn’t created problems in Washington. However, on November 4, 2013, King County experienced a massive butane hash oil (BHO) fire explosion that required 100 police and fire fighters to extinguish over a 7-hour period. What a cover-up!
