Riverview, Michigan – 9 a.m. Friday, City river view Will start accepting licenses for businesses that want to operate recreational marijuana enterprise.
Some, like Kinship Cannabis Co, are so determined they have been sleeping outside City Hall for the past 9 days to get a head start on their applications.
“Above all, we want to be involved in our community,” said Kinship’s brand ambassador, Andrew Curtis.
Riverview approved a recreational marijuana ordinance in December. It requires pre-approval from the state government and identification of where the business is located.
The business location is the tricky part. Due to Riverview’s size, real estate is limited, and the ordinance requires cannabis businesses to be more than 300 feet from each other in certain business districts.
All things being equal, if you have two competing businesses interested in the same location, does it matter if one of them applies first – the regulation doesn’t address that.
Kinship already operates an upscale cannabis store in Albion. If approved, it owns property in Riverview for commercial use.
“We’re excited to be at the forefront of our ship, if you want to call it that, sailing this new avenue in our own community,” Curtis said.
