T idewater Trader July 29, 2020 Page 18 Kent County Commissioners and State Delegation Unanimously Support Curio Wellness Proposed Auxiliary Location Ahead of a Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission hearing on Thursday, July 30 th , all three Kent County Commissioners (P. Thomas Mason, Ronald H. Fithian and Robert N. Jacob Jr.) and members of the Kent County State Delega- tion (Senator Stephen Hershey and Delegate Jay Jacobs) announced their unani- mous support today of Curio Wellness’ newly proposed auxiliary location in Kent County. Curio Wellness, based in Timonium, Maryland, is one of the state’s lead- ing health and wellness medicinal cannabis companies. The expansion would permit the construction of a new, 40,000-square-foot greenhouse facility and a 5,000-square-foot research lab to produce cannabis flower for patients across Maryland, which Curio Wellness anticipates will support 100 full-time, local jobs. “I’ve spent the last 26 years involved in Kent County government, 21-and-a-half of them as a Commissioner. Never in those years has there been a potential development that would bring with it the number of new jobs and downstream economic benefits that Curio Wellness’s expansion would mean for our county,” said Kent County Commissioner Ronald H. Fithian. “Our community welcomes them with open arms, and we look forward to part- nering with an innovative, Maryland-based business,” added President of the Kent County Board of County Commissioners P. Thomas Mason. “We propose expanding in Kent County because each cultivation method re- quires a specific type of property. Expanding our operation with an auxiliary greenhouse allows us to preserve our product pricing, while keeping our prom- ise to the Timonium community to maintain an indoor cultivation operation at our current site.” said Wendy Bronfein, co-founder of Curio Wellness. “When we determined the need for an auxiliary location, Kent County immediately came to mind. The thriving agriculture industry in the county is not only better suited for greenhouses but would also expand the geographic diversity of the medical cannabis program in Maryland – bringing new jobs and economic growth for our neighbors on the Eastern Shore.” “Curio Wellness’ expansion will help Kent County break ground in a new, rapidly growing industry and we anticipate the entire community will benefit from not only the influx in jobs - making Curio one of the County’s largest employers – but also, the economic multiplier effect those jobs will bring,” added Delegate Jay Jacobs. The proposal will be heard in front of the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commis- sion’s Policy Committee via a virtual meeting Thursday, July 30 th at 2:00pm.
