Westfield Planning Board approves site plan for medical marijuana production and distribution facility

WESTFIELD – Heka Health Inc. hopes to begin construction by June 1 on its estimated $4 million medical marijuana production and distribution facility on Sgt. T.M. Dion Way.

It is also hoping to be fully operational by Jan. 1, Chief Executive Officer Mark A. Dupuis said Tuesday night.

Those plans are contingent upon final approval for the necessary state certification, he said.

Westfield’s Planning Board gave its unanimous approval to Heka’s site plans for creation of the facility in an existing building at 98 Sgt. T.M. Dion Way in the city’s Northside.

The Planning Board’s authority only extends to site plan approval and stormwater permit approval since a medical marijuana operation is an approved building use within an Industrial A zone, officials said.

Heka Health Inc. plans to produce marijuana infused products such as hashes/concentrations, tinctures, capsules/pills and others. The company expects to employ between 20 and 30 workers.
