NORTH PROVIDENCE – The town would see its first legal mari- juana grow facility open under the state's new growing laws if two local boards approve a proposed facility on Charles Street in Marieville. The North Providence Planning Board will consider at its meeting tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 8, whether to recommend the Zoning Board of Review approve a use variance to allow a state-licensed medical marijuana cultivation facility at 1029 Charles St., a 14,702-square-foot building in a commercial village, or CV, zone. The facility proposed by Gavin Therien and Eastern Green Solutions would open in a cin- derblock building across from the Simon Auto Group.
