One step closer to a medical marijuana facility in Barrie.
City council committee has approved the sale of land on Rawson Avenue in the south end to Skytek Pharmaceutical.
The deal is expected to close in December with construction on the $7 million, 65,000 square foot facility to begin after that.
Skytek says it will employ 120 people with long term potential of up to 420 staff.
There will also be extensive security measures at the property.
