BATON ROUGE, La. - A medical marijuana company has big expansion plans for 
its Louisiana operations and is separately courting hemp farmers for an upcoming 
launch into CBD products. Wellcana Group is one of only two companies approved 
in the state to produce medical marijuana. The company is scouting locations 
between Baton Rouge and Lafayette for space to build a 100,000 square-foot 
indoor marijuana greenhouse and storage facility, according to The Advocate. The 
new facility would also be used as a collection center for hemp grown by local 
farmers for Wellcana's planned push into CBD products.
