Medical Marijuana at SI Airport

A reader of the blog pointed out this post from last February on the Southern Illinois Airport Facebook page:

Illinois has awarded IESO, LLC a license to cultivate medical marijuana for patients in need at a new $5 million indoor grow facility to be built at the Southern Illinois Airport. Governor Rauner’s announcement came last week and plans are already underway for groundbreaking. The facility will be highly secure and provide employment to nearly 50 people, including scientists and botanists. Research endeavors with SIU are being planned as well. Congratulations IESO!

As the reader noted, it's rather surprising for a medical marijuana facility to locate in southern Illinois but a $5 million facility and 50 jobs will overcome a lot of suspicion.
