“To me, Michigan is one of the biggest markets next to California,” said rapper and Cookies co-founder Berner. “Michigan smokers are very educated and spoiled for choice just like us in Cali. I spent a lot of time in Ann Arbor on off days during my music tour, and love the vibe. I look forward to bringing our customer journey and new flavors to one of my favorite towns.”

A portion of the sales made during the grand opening will go to the Last Prisoner Project nonprofit, according to the Cookies website.

Cookies Ann Arbor will employ around 25 people and carry a variety of products, ranging from edibles and prerolls to tinctures and flower.

Other Cookies dispensaries can be found in Detroit and Kalamazoo.

The storefront is at 2460 W. Stadium Blvd.
