Two more dual marijuana permits approved

ADRIAN — Recreational marijuana sales are expected to begin Friday in Adrian.

North Coast Provisions, 922 E. Beecher St., received its state license for recreational sales last Friday. Sean McQuarrie, CEO and owner of North Coast, said Tuesday they intend to start selling this Friday.

McQuarrie had hoped to coordinate recreational sales with Monday, which was 4-20, the popular holiday among cannabis users. However, North Coast was not able to get product in time. McQuarrie said they are expecting a shipment today and intend to use today and Thursday as preparation days.

McQuarrie said they plan to be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day this weekend.

North Coast, along with Amazing Budz and Highwire Farms, were the first three businesses to secure dual marijuana permits from the city. The permits allow a business to sell both medicinal and recreational, also called adult-use, under one permit though there are separate applications for both.

Both Amazing Budz and Highwire are awaiting their official license from the state, having passed inspection and filed the necessary paperwork.

Marie McPhail, owner of Amazing Budz, said she hopes they are selling within a week.

Two additional businesses were approved for dual permits Monday. The Adrian City Commission approved permits for Lume Cannabis Co. and Heads Cannabis Co.

Lume, 738 S. Main St., opened in February, selling medicinal marijuana products.

Doug Hellyar, president and COO of Lume, said in a statement they hope to start selling recreational marijuana in the next week. Lume still has to undergo an inspection from the state.

Heads Cannabis Co., 913 S. Main St., is not yet open but already had a medicinal permit.

City attorney Tamaris Henagan said Heads Cannabis is eligible to be open for medicinal sales but has opted to have its grand opening when both medical and recreational products can be sold.
