Meanwhile, at the Greenhouse of Walled Lake, business is better than ever, owner Jerry Millen said.
Curbside pickup, which was once banned, has been allowed during the pandemic, and now it’s permanent. Millen said that has been a game-changer.
The rise in marijuana use is connected to the way the coronavirus has affected how people spend their time and money.
