Marijuana facilities opening in Baldwin area
BALDWIN — Residents seeking medical marijuana will soon have two options available to them.
With the approval of medical and recreational marijuana sales in Pleasant Plains Township, local business owners Steve and Audrey Dominique, operators of Pure Michigan Solutions, a smoke shop located on M-37 in Baldwin, are looking to expand into the marijuana business.
The Green Door Baldwin, a medical marijuana dispensary, will open at their current location this month.
"We've added on to our building and moved the Pure Michigan Solutions business to the back," Dominique said. "The Green Door Baldwin medical marijuana dispensary will be at the front."
A second facility, The Green Door Pleasant Plains, located at U.S. 10 and Forman Road, is in the works with plans for opening in four to five months, Dominique added.
Each location will eventually include a recreational marijuana retail facility as well, she continued, and they are looking at establishing a grow facility for medical marijuana next summer.
"We have been working on this for about two years, waiting for the laws and regulations to be put into place, getting the licenses and working with the township to get things set up," Dominique said. "We have partnered with The Green Door Bangor to expedite our licensing."
Together the facilities are expected to provide up to 30 local jobs.
