Please watch this brief message from Greenhouse owner and Livingston County resident Jerry Millen
TRUTH: This is simply flat out, and easily proven FALSE.
There is a firm limit of 2 retailers allowed under the ordinance.
"The following numbers of marihuana
establishments may be authorized to operate in the City, subject to this Ordinance: Two (2) marihuana retailers"
TRUTH: Another "scare tactic" that is easily proven FALSE
There will be NO cannabis retailers on Main St. in Downtown Brighton.
On page 13 of the city of Brighton's ordinance under the heading: "PART 2 – CHAPTER 98, ZONING." the following can be found:
"Separation Distances. No marihuana establishments are permitted within eight hundred (800) feet of the following: A park or playground, K‐12 public or private school, An establishment that offers regular on‐site cultural, educational, artistic, athletic, social, recreational or advisory programs and services primarily to persons 18 years of age and under."
TRUTH: The statistics refute this "scare tactic."
In July 2019, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a major report analyzing federal data from more than 1.4 million high school students. The researchers found no significant associations between the enactment of adult-use legalization laws and marijuana use among high school students.
TRUTH: Again a complete fabrication to manipulate your vote
On page 15 of the ordinance under the
"Requirements; I iii" subheading:
Drive‐through establishments, walk up windows and mobile establishments are prohibited.
TRUTH: At state licensed cannabis retailers, like The Greenhouse of Walled Lake, no sales can be made without first verifying a patient or guests age by scanning their state licensed ID. You must be 21+ or older to purchase adult use cannabis.
Currently there are several unlicensed, illegal "black market" delivery services operating in Brighton. These services can be easily found on places like Instagram, Snapchat or weedmaps. These places DO NOT I.D. and will sell untested, black market cannabis to minors.
The presence of state licensed retailers significantly reduces the presence of "black market dealers" in the immediate area.
TRUTH: This stereotype could not be further from the truth.
The average Greenhouse guest is 44 years old, and cannabis users come from all walks of life; Doctors, teachers, engineers, retirees, veterans, and homemakers to name a few.
According to Gallup almost half of all Americans have tried cannabis, and a staggering 68% of Americans support cannabis legalization! Forbes recently published a study from the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology that completely Debunks The 'Lazy Stoner' Stereotype.
The Greenhouse of Walled Lake has been voted Oakland County's best for 3 straight years. With a strong emphasis on education and positive community involvement, The Greenhouse has become an industry leader and respected example of a well run, compliant, licensed cannabis retailer.
Greenhouse owner Jerry Millen is a longtime Livingston County resident.
