Over $42.2 million paid out to Michigan municipalities from its cannabis dispensaries – FOX 17 West Michigan News

PORTAGE, Mich. — 4/20 as cannabis enthusiasts call it, marks the busiest day of the year for cannabis dispensaries.

Doja Dispensary in Portage told Fox 17 there was a steady line all day long starting early in the morning when they opened. The owner said he expected to see over 1,000 people go through their doors.

It’s a day they have to prepare for, almost like Black Friday for other retail stores.

Employees are given assigned positions, a parking plan is put in place and deals are quick and easily understandable to allow as many people through the door as they can.

At Doja Dispensary and their sister store Lake Effects in Portage, they also have special deals for people wanting to show their pride in freedom of use in Michigan.

“It’s a great cannabis enthusiast day. We have $5 grams, $4 grams, $3 grams, $50 ounces, $100 ounces, 10 for 100 carts and wax, all kinds of edible deals, 50% off storewide pretty much. You can’t beat it. I guarantee,” said Co-Owner of Doja and Lake Effect Dispensaries Jevin Weyenberg.

Their sister store, Lake Effects said as of noon on 4/20 they had already seen 1,000 people through the door.
