Holyoke City Council Blesses Pot Plan

The Holyoke City Council is approving a  special permit for a recreational marijuana cultivation and  manufacturing center in a former paper mill.  

The permit for Holyoke  Gardens was approved by an 11-to-1 vote on Tuesday.  

The council had  been previously prepared to vote on the permit for the facility on  Dwight Street last month but an inspection report alleging fire safety  and building code issues, among other problems, caused a delay.  

The  business will still need a license from the state Cannabis Control  Commission.
