Reach for the pot: Medical grow-op planned for Barachois…

If things go according to plan, the Back Home Medical Cannabis Corporation will soon be providing medical cannabis — and jobs — to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The company is planning a large, high-tech pot grow operation for Barachois Brook near Stephenville, with hopes of having product available by the time it’s legalized later this year.

“We’ve got, I think, probably as good an opportunity to be a very successful company as any on the globe,” said David Callahan, the president of Back Home Medical Cannabis, which is owned by Biome Grow.
