The site of the former Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens could soon be seeing green.
Last month, the city recently awarded a license to grow, dispense and process medical marijuana in the building of the former trade center, said Mount Clemens Mayor Barb Dempsey. The site is located on North River Road near I-94. In addition, city officials granted a license for a retail facility in the former Kraatz Flowers store on Groesbeck Highway.
Dempsey said businessman James George, the owner of Gibraltar, received a license from the state, as did Hani Kassab, another applicant who was approved for dispensary and growing in the vacant flower shop.
