One of the most import steps in building a successful cannabis company is location. With only just over 100 of Michigan’s 1,600 pus municipalities opting into allowing marijuana facilities we have a lot of work to do to create opportunities. We will give business owners the tools and strategies they need to effectively communicate and work with local units of government. With the right plan, approach and advocacy business owners can create their own destiny.
