Marijuana Dispensary more stable after acquiring Class A micro-business License

dispensary

A marijuana dispensary in Ypsilanti has become the first Class A microbusiness in Washtenaw County, and just the second in the state of Michigan.

 

 

A dispensary with a microbusiness license is currently allowed to grow 150 plants and can only sell their own products.

According to Planet Jane co-owner Mo Kasham, a Class A license makes his business more stable by allowing them to grow up to 300 plants and sell infused products from other growers. “They doubled the amount of plants you can have. And you can also go out to outside processors and buy items like pre-rolls, concentrates, edibles and things like that, which is a major advantage.”

While the building on the corner of Albany and Division Avenue Southeast sits empty now, two West Michigan natives have bigger things in store for the space. Co-founders Glen Clanton and Dr. Paul King say there are only four labs open in West Michigan.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa premieres cannabis line in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Lil Wayne

There's no doubt Wiz Khalifa knows his marijuana. I dare you to find a photo or video on his Instagram account where he isn't smoking, or there isn't at least some smoke around him.

So with such knowledge on weed, it's no surprise he's bringing his own line to the Great Lakes State, and he premiered it in Grand Rapids this past weekend.

You won't get your hands on his personal stash, but Wiz's on brand of Cannabis, Khalifa Kush, is now available in Michigan, specifically at Gage Cannabis locations.

Regulators in Michigan have nixed a proposal to allow the conversion of cannabinoids derived from hemp into THC.

Regulators in Michigan announced on Friday that a plan to allow cannabinoids derived from hemp to be processed into THC would be withdrawn from consideration. The announcement came only two days after the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) was renamed and given new authority over the state’s hemp industry under an executive order issued by Governor Gretchen Witmer earlier this year.

Few options exist at MSU for prospective cannabis students

Thousands of students attend Michigan State University to study biology, chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, business and agriculture. While these programs might not seem all too similar, an uncommon link creates a connection between them all — cannabis.

Its multi-disciplinary nature and wide variety of uses have resulted in a multi-million-dollar industry, especially since its legalization for recreational use in 2019. This has resulted in a student population that is seeking to focus on entrance into this industry.

But these students won't find any level of cannabis-focused education at MSU.

Marijuana sales produced $56,000 in Michigan tax revenue per store last year

Michigan

As the second retail store selling marijuana and related products opened this week, the Gaylord City Council received a preview of the potential tax revenue that could be generated by the fledgling industry.

Recently, the Michigan Department of Treasury said Michigan municipalities that allow recreational marijuana sales will divide more than $42 million from the state’s marijuana regulation fund for 2021. Each municipality or county will receive about $56,400 per retailer or microbusiness. 

"All of the licenses were approved by the state through September 2021 are included in the distribution. So the city won't collect anything (from last year)," Gaylord City Manager Kim Awrey said at Monday night's council meeting.
