The legalization of marijuana in Michigan for medicinal and recreational use has been a game changer. Although I don't "burn" anymore, I did for many years of my life. Being legalized is a good thing for our state. The only thing I have an issue with is that "newcomers" to the marijuna world will never experience of the paranoia of driving home with the bag because it is legal now. Those were the days.

"Head Shops" used to be the coolest place to go. You could go and pick out some cool smoking apparatuses. Cool, artistic things could be found at the "head shop" too. Remember fractal posters? How cool were those back in the day? Wacky names and creativitiy I associate with the marijuana industry. I would expect that marijuana businesses are getting creative with the names of their companies.

The name of a companyy isn't necessarily going to get me to come into your store. Not to say that I haven't stopped into businesses because of their name, if it's clever there's a chance I could stop. As far as the marijuana stores go, I'll leave that to you and I can tell if their product is good by the look on your face and the nachos in your hand.

Let's see who's getting creative in Michigan with names for their stores. Growin says we have 1,042 active medical and adult use cannabis retailers in Michigan, according to data from the state's Cannabis Regulatory Agency.
