Cannabis Oil Production Facility Proposed for Empty San Joaquin Valley Prison

California Prison Could Become a Cannabis Oil Production Facility

The shuttered San Joaquin Valley Prison in Coalinga, Calif., could become the Central Valley’s first cannabis oil production facility.

The Southern California company Ocean Growth Extracts has submitted a proposal to turn the abandoned, 77,000-sq.-ft. former prison into a state-of-the-art marijuana grow and cannabis oil plant, simultaneously bringing 100 jobs and nearly $2 million annually to the struggling city. The proposal was brought to the City Council by Coalinga Mayor Ron Ramsey and City Manager Marissa Trejo and supported by Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Keough, who addressed the Council in favor of the proposal.

We’re also all familiar with Tupperware parties, where women gather and pretty much talk about the same things, this time with tasty desserts being passed around instead.
