Cookies Dispensary, which gained popularity in Los Angeles, is a big name in the weed world. And when Rapper Berner decided to bring one to Michigan, everyone was pumped.
Exciting as it may be, and truthfully I’ve never been to one in my trips to LA, I wouldn’t say it’s worth sitting in the cold for 24-48 hours for when it opens. But clearly – it is for some.
Driving by the location on 8 Mile near Mound Road, a line of people are huddled up in face masks and overcoats, hoping to be the first few inside. Mind you, yes, Detroit has gotten safer as time’s gone on. But camping out on 8 Mile and Mound while carrying cash only for a dispo purchase seems like natural selection to me. And I’ve done some dumb shit in my lifetime!
At any rate, Cookies Michigan opens tomorrow with a ribbon-cutting at 9AM, and Detroit’s excited. Well, most of Detroit. I’m sure 5 and Dime Dispensary isn’t, since Cookies and clout set up next door.
