Ann Arbor, known for its vibrant Hash Bash celebrations, is set to welcome a new cannabis dispensary, Meds Cafe, in a location that's at the heart of the annual event. The city's Planning Commission approved a zoning permit on Tuesday, April 2nd, for Meds Cafe to establish its business in the former premises of Green Planet dispensary, located at 700 Tappan Street. This spot is notably adjacent to Monroe Street, a gathering hub for thousands of cannabis aficionados who partake in the Monroe Street Fair, aligning with Hash Bash festivities at the nearby University of Michigan Diag each first Saturday of April.

Jamie Lowell, the Hash Bash organizer and Chief Operating Officer for the Meds Cafe dispensary chain, had initially aspired for the Ann Arbor location to open its doors in time for this year's Hash Bash on Saturday, April 6th. However, the detailed bureaucratic process and pending state-level approvals have extended the timeline. Despite this delay, with the city's permit now secured, Lowell anticipates the dispensary will commence operations within the forthcoming three weeks.

Meds Cafe is expanding its footprint in Michigan, with existing outlets in Alpena, Cheboygan, Lowell, Manistee, Rogers City, and an upcoming one in Gaylord, marking its growth in serving the cannabis community across the state.
