It sounds like an autumnal offshoot of Disneyland, and for some it kind of is, but Michigan’s Harvest Park in is on track to become an epic medical marijuana facility, creating hundreds of cannabis-related jobs in its wake.
Jeff Donahue, Harvest Park Development LLC’s managing director, tells Lansing State Journal he expects to see a creation of “ancillary businesses” that specialize in fields like packaging, machine operation and data analytics.
The 63-acres of Harvest Park, located in Windsor Township in Eaton County, is portioned off into 10 lots, each for sale. And according to the LSJ, “land will be available to marijuana cultivators, processors, secure transporters, testing labs and suppliers. All will need approval from the township and state to operate. Two of the lots are already under contract with the company.”
Says Donahue, “I think the location is perfect, It’s an area ripe for development.”
Michigan state law allows cities and townships to make the call on whether or not to allow marijuana businesses — and which types — to operate.

This new park could be a financial windfall for Windsor Township, with experts predicting revenues of more than $700 million in medical marijuana annually, should it ever become fully legal.
Harvest Park is targeting spring as their official opening.
