COTTAGE GROVE — A company recently founded by members of the Bachman family has proposed the establishment of a 24-acre medical marijuana farm in Cottage Grove.

LeafLine Labs LLC is seeking approval for the industrial pot operation from the state Department of Health and the Cottage Grove City Council. The company could be producing marijuana at the proposed facility as early as next July, and eventually distributing its product to customers across the state.

City administrator Ryan Schroeder said he supports the proposal because it could bring up to 150 jobs to Cottage Grove.
