Standing on the rear balcony of a gray factory building off the side of a highway, Tamir Gedo shields his eyes from the blazing sun. He points to the 23 acres of agricultural fields spread out before him. “We’ll be able to produce more cannabis here than the entire state of Colorado,” he says. Minutes later, walking past the 8,000 square-foot storage room, he adds, “We can store enough in this warehouse to supply medical marijuana for the whole United States.”
With one million square feet of cultivation fields, a 35,000-square-foot production plant, and 30,000 square feet of grow rooms and labs, Gedo’s company, Breath of Life Pharma (BOL), is about to open the world’s largest medical marijuana production, research and development facility. According to Gedo’s estimates, BOL will produce 80 tons – more than 175,000 pounds – of cannabis per year.
A tour of BOL’s new facility feels like a walk through the medical-marijuanaversion of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. With its patented extraction and purification equipment, grow rooms and germination labs, BOL will be pumping out pharmaceutical-grade cannabis tablets, capsules, inhalers and oils that are customized to treat certain ailments, with specific and controlled consistencies.
And no, this isn’t happening in Colorado, California, or anywhere near America for that matter. This medical weed wonderland sits in what might be the last place you would imagine finding the world’s largest facility for medical marijuana: Israel. [Read more at Rolling Stone]

The Mississippi Legislature voted Wednesday to legalize medical marijuana, one of the final steps in making cannabis available in the Magnolia State. The Senate and House overwhelmingly passed an amended version of the bill, sending it to Gov. Tate Reeves’ desk. Reeves can either sign the bill, let it become law without signing it or veto it. Although…
Amazon is channeling its influence in Washington to drum up bipartisan support for an unlikely cause: legalizing marijuana. The company on Tuesday endorsed legislation by Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) to end the federal prohibition on pot, as Forbes reported, the first time it has backed a GOP-led bill on the issue. In doing so, Amazon…
Results of a survey released today by Onfleet, a San Francisco, California-based tech company whose last mile delivery management software streamlines delivery operations for thousands of businesses around the world, strongly suggests that consumer interest in cannabis home delivery is not only sticky enough to survive the COVID pandemic but appears capable of permanently supplanting…
