The co-creator of Friends, Kevin Bright, is on a mission to turn 400 acres of Saratoga County land into a marijuana farm.
The project could allow upstate New York to become the Napa Valley of pot according to Bright.
Bright and his wife Claudia own 400 acres of land in Greenfield Center and want to grow cannabis on the property all while creating an agro-tourism industry in Saratoga County.
The farm, which is run by Claudia’s family, currently produces maple syrup on the property, and the family intends to continue the maple operation.
When surrounding properties became available, Kevin and Claudia bought them.
The couple believe their project will create more than 100 jobs, and lure tourists from far and away. The husband and wife duo are pursuing a cannabis license from New York state.
Kevin says he’d like to see the process move along a little more quickly and mindfully.
If Kevin was able to make Friends such a hit show, the possibilities of his marijuana farm look very promising.
