A pair of brothers has been issued a license to grow marijuana in Muskogee — the first issued in the city, they believe — and they’re working on big plans.
Wesley and Aaron Lewis plan to grow up to 100 strands of marijuana at 420 N. Main St., the former DHS building on the east side of the road, across from Arrowhead Mall.
“Yes, we’re aware of the significance of the 420 address,” Sherri Lewis said today. “We plan to grow, process and dispense there, as soon as the processing and dispensing licenses come.”
The group has been investing in and studying cannabis operations in Colorado for the last five years, and plans to start growing in two weeks, she said.
“We have learned a lot,” she said. “We will be growing hydroponically, and we plan to start dispensing in November or December, but we might be selling seedlings before that.”
The brothers already have a processor lined up and an edibles maker with a culinary degree, who has been practicing with cannabis-infused foods in Colorado.
“The dispensary will have public and private entrances,” Lewis said. “There will be parents who don’t want to come in the public entrance, and the private entrance will be by appointment only.”
