The Town of Silverton has ordered the owner of a marijuana grow facility to eliminate the exotic odors wafting from the building on the south end of downtown.
“It’s a big concern,” said town code enforcer Keith Thompson. “We don’t want the town to smell like weed.”
The Silverton Hash Works facility at 951 Greene Street is licensed to grow marijuana and manufactures marijuana-infused products — for medical use only. It has operated at the location since 2011.
Thompson said the operator, Justin DeAngelis, is in the process of installing a new air filtration system.
“They’re about half way through,” Thompson reported to the Town Council on Monday, April 28. “It should be done next week or the week after.”
