WALLED LAKE (WWJ) - The first dispensary to sell recreational marijuana in Oakland County is adjusting its grand opening plans due to the coronavirus.
The Greenhouse of Walled Lake is indefinitely postponing its Grand Opening celebration, which had been set for March 14, because of coronavirus concerns.
There is a green lining to the situation, however. The dispensary will still be open for recreational sales from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, and store hours will continue to be the same moving forward.
"I always put the health, safety and welfare of our customers first, and therefore I have made the decision to postpone tomorrow’s event," owner Jerry Millen said in a statement. "I want to remind our existing patients and new customers that while the grand opening festivities are not taking place, we will continue to provide the same high-quality cannabis products and service."
The Greenhouse is located at 103. E. Walled Lake Drive, just east of S. Pontiac Trail.
It has been legal for Michigan residents and visitors to have up to 2.5 ounces (71 grams) of marijuana on them and up to 10 ounces (284 grams) at home, since Dec. 6, 2018. Recreational sales in Michigan became legal on Dec. 1, 2019.
