Michigan investors hope to open a $45-million dollar medical marijuana facility at a vacant plaza in Pontiac. They’re giving “special consideration” to job applicants with felony or misdemeanor charges related to marijuana.
Pharmaco Inc. of Southfield, the firm behind the development, has planned to redevelop Glenwood Plaza since 2017, working with investment firm Rubicon Capital.
However, the project still awaits city approval. The firm is hosting a job fair at the plaza Tuesday, The Oakland Press reports.
A $599 training course is required. The fee will be waived for Pontiac residents. Positions include harvest associates, administrators and supervisors paying $15 to $18 per hour with benefits. Applicants must be at least 21-years-old.
