A second marijuana company is considering opening in Lanesborough.
iBerkshires.com reports Barry Coleman and Benjamin English told the Board of Selectmen on Tuesday night that they're looking for about a 20,000 square-foot establishment to grow cannabis.
In the future, they'd like to expand into a retail operation as well. Locally, the pair said they've met with officials in Clarksburg, Williamstown, and North Adams.
But before the company closes on a location to start, the pair said they are meeting with officials just to make sure they'd be embraced by the town.
