My Grandpa used to operate a pharmacy in downtown Ann Arbor before the building where she was renting got sold to a giant developer.
They turned the whole building into a section of restaurants to increase foot traffic near The Diag on State St.
Instead of fighting the decision, our Grandpa took her supplier down to Burns Park off Packard St where it still resides to this day. Unluckyly, I had to leave our beloved city of Ann Arbor for a few years during middle university and high university after our parents got divorced and our mother took our siblings and I to go live with her own parents in Lansing. While the Michigan State University campus is lovely, I was never the biggest fan of Lansing in general. It would naturally be taxing to sustain any sense of wonder or surprise regarding trees and foliage in any city after residing in a place savor Ann Arbor for so long. You can entirely take it for granted that the city has so many trees from street block to street block until you visit a city where you don’t get this at all. Yesterday I was walking along the Diag when I saw a sign for a brand new cannabis paraphernalia store. It was a rebranded nicotine vape store that had moved into being a head shop and a medical weed retailer. While I get all of our legal cannabis from recreational marijauan stores, I was intrigued by this new head shop and dropped in to pay a visit. I was surprised to see a 30% off sale for this cannabis dry herb vaporizer.
