LIV Cannabis Co.’s Detroit dispensary.
One of Detroit’s first adult-use cannabis dispensaries is getting ready to open for business.
LIV Cannabis Co., located at 12604 E. Jefferson Ave., is set to celebrate with a grand opening party on Saturday, June 17. The party is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with deals, giveaways, food trucks and other vendors, and live entertainment from DJ Problematic Black Hottie, comedian HaHa Davis, and rappers Rocky Badd and Felix the Don.
“We’ve been working on it for years,” LIV Cannabis Co. chief retail officer Dennis Zoma tells Metro Times.
“You want to be able to have access to safe, tested cannabis without having to drive a certain distance in order to get it,” he adds. “Now [Detroiters] can get it in their own backyard.”
While Michigan voters approved adult-use cannabis in 2018, Detroit was late to get into the game after attempts to create an ordinance with an emphasis on social equity were caught up in court
