Medical Marijuana Company Leaves Oakland County, MI

Submit this story In an economy that struggles to keep its head above water, a medical marijuana company – and all the economic impact it brings – has been forced to move its operation out of Oakland County, Michigan.


Big Daddy’s Management Group has closed its headquarters in Oak Park, MI, taking a dozen employees and several businesses with them.


The move is due to the hostile stance taken toward medical marijuana by the county, which led to raids in Commerce Township, MI just this week. Authorities seized cannabis plants and growing equipment. Combine this with recent actions by the courts in the state and you have a recipe for business exodus – something Michigan can ill afford.


Some officials seem to think some misguided moral crusade is more important than people having jobs. It’s not like voters in the state decided to open up brothels everywhere to create jobs; these collectives are dispensing medicine to people who need it. And the industry employees people as well?


Seems like a win-win situation that many in Michigan fail to grasp.
