Old Hershey Plant Switches From Chocolate to Marijuana Production

A former Hershey chocolate production plant in Ontario, Canada has become home to a marijuana production facility, The New York Times reports. The facility houses 50,000 marijuana plants.

The plant is now owned by Tweed Marijuana, one of about 20 companies licensed to grow medical marijuana in Canada, the article notes. When the government first approved medical marijuana in 2000, it allowed people to grow their own or turn over their growing to small operations, prompting complaints from law enforcement.
