Stateside Podcast: Cannabis lounges are coming to Michigan

Martijn Baudoin
Michigan could soon approve licenses for its first cannabis consumption lounges, but they won’t exactly look like what you might expect in a bar or restaurant.

Let’s get this straight: Liquor stores can't sell marijuana, dispensaries can't sell alcohol, you can’t consume cannabis in a dispensary, and cannabis lounges can't sell weed. But you can consume weed in a lounge if you bring your own? Michiganders are finding workarounds, and a cannabis industry reporter is here to tell us how.
