Opening Friday: Lansing's first drive-thru cannabis dispensary – Lansing State Journal

Bazonzoes Provisioning Center, a Lansing-based cannabis company, will open a recreational dispensary Friday at 920 American Road on the city’s south side. In addition to the store’s indoor retail space, customers can order products on the store’s website ahead of time and pick up their order from their driver’s seat.

The location will be Bazonzoes’ second in Lansing and third overall, along with its 2101 W. Willow St. recreational dispensary and medical provisioning center near the city’s Old Oakland neighborhood.
