Consumption lounges slow to gain traction under restrictive policies, difficult biz model

Recreational cannabis sales have been legal in Michigan for nearly three years, but establishing public spaces to legally consume weed is still in its infancy. The first two state-qualified “consumption lounges” opened this year: Hot Box Social in Hazel Park and Kalkushka Lounge in Kalkaska.

Honoring our Veterans: Aunt Helen – By Marian Brennan Pratt

Helen Brennan Butler was my dad’s sister. She was born at home in Kenockee Township, on November 17, 1913. Aunt Helen and dad had one sister, Catherine, who was 5 and 6 years older than the two “babies”. They called her “The Queen”.
