Plans are moving forward for an industrial park in mid-Michigan where marijuana would be grown.

Harvest Park says that all 63 acres (25 hectares) of the first phase of the planned 130-acre (53-hectare) development have been sold to licensed cultivators, processors or people in other medical marijuana fields. The remaining land now is being made available.

MLive.com reported the update on the project in Eaton County's Windsor Township on Thursday.

Those involved in the project said last year that the overall development is expected to create 1,000 jobs. Managing Director Jeff Donahue says in a statement that the response "has far exceeded our expectations." He says construction is expected to begin soon.

Michigan voters approved marijuana use in 2008 for some chronic medical conditions.
