Pot producer Aurora Cannabis pulls a ‘Breaking Bad’ – grows weed out of a trailer in Alberta

The temporary 5,000 square-foot setup will also feature a staff room, offices, storage space, and a production room. 

Canadian licensed producer Aurora Cannabis Inc. will be living its best Breaking Bad life during the production of its $130 million Aurora Sunproduction facility in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Nope, they aren’t expanding to methamphetamine production – but they will be growing cannabis out a trailer for the duration of the 1.6 million square-foot site’s construction.

The temporary 5,000 square-foot setup will feature a staff room, offices, storage space, and a production room. Out of eight approved trailers, only one will be used to grow cannabis.

The city’s municipal planning commission voted in favour of allowing the cannabis trailer park on June 26.

“I think it’s just a temporary thing before their main building comes online,” city councillor Brian Varga told Chat News Today! “They want to start teaching people and training people in their world of what cannabis is all about, how they’re going to grow it, how they’re going to dry it, how they’re going to store it.”

Full construction of the permanent facility, which received its necessary Health Canada licences in Feb, is expected to be completed sometime next year. It is expected to produce a yield of “150,000+ kgs of cannabis” per year once  completed.

Aurora currently has two production facilities in Quebec as well as another in Alberta, but they are located in permanent structures.
