FRIDAY, March 27 — Two more recreational marijuana dispensaries are open for curbside sales in Lansing this week after state officials declared pot shops to be “essential” in Michigan.
During the statewide lockdown, residents in the capital city can still browse cannabis selections at six recreational marijuana dispensaries and order online for a delivery or curbside pickup. Two more medical marijuana dispensaries also opened for adult recreational sales this week.
Here are the options:
5815 S. Pennsylvania Ave.
1900 E. Kalamazoo St.
5025 S. Pennsylvania Ave.
2905 N. East St.
3200 N. East St.
2508 S. Cedar St.
134 E. Edgewood Blvd.
Records provided by the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs show statewide sales for both recreational and medical marijuana spiked earlier this month — nearly to an all-time high for medical sales — after Michigan detected its first confirmed case of COVID-19.
“Studies have shown that cannabis can reduce anxiety and stress, and we believe continued access to this product during this time is pertinent,” said Robin Schneider, executive director of the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association, in a letter to Whitmer. “More importantly, patients with cancer, AIDS, chronic pain, seizures, and pediatric patients have reduced or replaced pharmaceuticals, including opiates, with medical cannabis.”
Until at least April 13, in-store sales at both recreational and medical marijuana dispensaries can only accept phone and online orders for curbside pick-up or home delivery. In-store sales, under executive order, are prohibited to help prevent the spread of coronavirus statewide.
Skymint is also offering a 10% discount on all purchases ordered online until further notice. At least HomeGrown Cannabis Co. is accepting text and phone orders for a curbside retrieval.
