A Californian State Prison, Now a Pot Farm.
Bob Marley’s last son Damian Marley, is turning a prison that once housed non-violent drug offenders into a cannabis cultivation facility. In partnership with Ocean Grown Extracts, the 77,000 square foot California State prison will cultivate medical marijuana for state dispensaries.
With their purchase of the Claremont Custody Center in Coalinga, CA for $4.1 million, Marley and his partners instantly relieved the economically-challenged Central Valley town of its roughly $3.3 million debt.
