US (MI): Couple plans to open 'roadside stand' cannabis operation in Gaylord

Ian and Whitney Simpson of Bellaire will be doing a lot of commuting to Gaylord.

They will be tending to their cannabis business in the city. Located in the old Goodwill building off of Edelweiss Village Parkway, the Simpsons are in the process of completing a remodeling of the structure and the regulatory process to operate a cannabis microbusiness.

A cannabis microbusiness is permitted under Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA). That license will enable the Simpsons to grow up to 150 plants, process and package the cannabis into retail products such as concentrates and edibles and sell it to individuals 21 and older. The owner of these facilities must be a Michigan resident and can’t hold an interest in any other cannabis business. 

Ian Simpson said their facility, called Canna, is similar in concept to a roadside stand off the highway in which a farmer grows their own vegetables and sells directly to the public.
