In Roseville, Michigan, a significant transformation is underway as the dilapidated Roseville Inn, a site long associated with various community disturbances, is being demolished to make way for a new cannabis dispensary. This development marks a noteworthy change in the landscape of Groesbeck Highway, south of Common Road.

The Roseville Inn, now vacant, has been a center of numerous police and fire department interventions over the past three years. City Manager Ryan Monroe highlighted the frequent calls for service at the location, ranging from arguments and vagrancy to tenant evictions and requests for ambulance services. The local police department, under Chief Mitchell Berlin, has been particularly active at the site, addressing issues related to prostitution and narcotics trafficking.

The demolition of this two-story motel, which has seen significant deterioration over time, is a development that local authorities, including Chief Berlin, welcome. The replacement of the troubled motel with a new structure is seen as a positive step for the community.

The property, located at 29765 Roseville, was acquired in October for $1.85 million by a corporation of the same name. The purchase, facilitated by Mahendra Patel of Livonia, lists Hani Kassab Jr., a senior executive at Jars Cannabis, as the resident agent.

Jars Cannabis, the company behind the new dispensary, aims to have the facility operational by October, as indicated on their website. This initiative is part of a broader movement within Roseville, where the City Council granted recreational marijuana facility licenses to six companies in September. These companies, including Jars, are expected to establish their presence primarily in the Groesbeck Highway industrial corridor.

As part of their agreement with the city, these companies have committed to contributing positively to the community, including making charitable donations. This aspect of the agreement is overseen by Rob Huth, a Clinton Township-based attorney representing Jars. The company already has a presence in Macomb County, with dispensaries in Center Line and Mount Clemens, and another under construction in Chesterfield Township.
