Green Arrow becomes latest addition to Gaylord's marijuana economy – Petoskey News-Review

GAYLORD — Another retail marijuana outlet has opened in Gaylord as Green Arrow on West Main Street began operations in a former Ponderosa restaurant building.

Green Arrow is part of the Rize cannabis company, which has stores in Iron Mountain and Marquette. The company’s special use permit approved by the city council last year included a provision that it adopt a different name from the Rize moniker it uses on its other outlets.

The stipulation came after a local group called Rise, which advocates a substance-free lifestyle for youth, objected to the Rize name for the dispensary. 

“The green arrow has been our logo since we first started the company in the U.P.,” said Michelle Willes, training manager. “(The arrow) points right to the actual facility and Green Arrow will be a lower Michigan Rize.”
