Farmers race against Mother Nature’s clock to harvest first legal marijuana crop

On Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, farmer Leif Abel is hurrying to harvest what will become his most lucrative crop.

“It’s getting cold out,” Leif Abel said. “This is outdoor agriculture, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re growing cannabis or lettuce — Mother Nature calls all the shots.”

Greatland Ganja is a family business located on a secured lot just off the Sterling Highway in Kasilof. Earlier this year it became the second cultivation facility in Alaska to navigate the state regulations, pass an inspection and legally start growing commercial cannabis.
