She Fielded Questions And Announced An Interest In Canton, Particularly In Partnership And To Foster Medical Research With The Pro Football Hall Of Fame.

The state may award a dozen Level 1 cultivator licenses, which can be up to 25,000-square-feet operations, and a dozen Level II cultivator licenses, which can be up to 3,000 square feet. Councilman Edmond Mack, D-8, said it was best for the council to approve the measure sooner rather than later because of the growing interest in cultivation. It would confirm, he said, that “Canton’s open for business.” Mack said the regulations were crafted after those recently approved in Akron. The council, however, chose to increase the application and license fees to $500 for a provisional license, which must be obtained for a year, and to $5,000 for the following operating license. The license is good for two years and involves a security inspection by Canton police, according to city documents. Some council members supported even higher fees. “I think we’re leaving money on the table,” Councilman Bill Smuckler, D-at-large, said before voting in favor of the proposal. Prior to the council meeting, members heard from Paula Givens, who is involved with the medical cannabis industry marijuana in New York and Michigan. She fielded questions and announced an interest in Canton, particularly in partnership and to foster medical research with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. She cited former NFL player Floyd Little as a board member of Terradiol, for which she is the director of compliance in Syracuse, N.Y.
