Just a reminder that tonight there will be town hall meeting by a medical marijuana company that is looking to locate a facility near Hebron.

The gathering to be held at the Black Diamond Lodge in Fruitland at 7 p.m. will give the firm BioCannatix a chance to lay out its plans and address community concerns.

WBOC reports that organizers say there will be experts on hand.

The facility would grow and process the marijuana under one of the 15 applications that are being offered by the state of Maryland.

Construction of the plant is expected to cost up to $8 million and it would be located on the corner of Memory Gardens Lane and Log Cabin Road.
