After sitting vacant for many years, Michigan’s Gibraltar Trade Center site in Mouth Clemens will be turning into a massive cannabis dispensary and cannabis-based drinks operation.
The trade center has been vacant for five years but now with backing from Pleasantrees, it’s about to get a complete overhaul.
Rick Wershe, ‘White Boy Rick,’ and his cannabis brand are partnering with Pleasantrees.
“We’re gonna create jobs, we’re gonna take a building that was essentially abandoned and you know, make it more eye appealing to residents of Mount Clemens and give back to Mount Clemens,” Wershe explained.
The project will partner with Blake’s Hard Cider to make cannabis-infused non-alcoholic beverages.
“I think it’s going to be appealing to the curious individuals that have never smoked anything. Don’t want to combust or smoke anything, but can still try cannabis at a very, very, very light dose — mild dose,” Pleasantrees CEO Randall Buckman stated.
There are also plans for a canning operation and the possibility of nationwide distribution.
The site will open Friday (Feb. 18) as a provisioning center, a drive-thru cannabis dispensary that will open at 9 a.m. after a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
