Detroit – Detroit regulators issued a retail license for adult-use marijuana four years after recreational cannabis sales began in Michigan.
In late December, the city notified the first 33 successful applicants for approved adult-use marijuana retail licenses.
Of these 33 licenses, one was issued by DACUT Weed Dispensary Detroit on Gratiot Avenue. That license now allows anyone over the age of 21 to buy cannabis.

DACUT President Al Williams said the license was issued two weeks ago, but there is work to be done before it can begin selling recreational marijuana.
“We had to contact the state of Michigan and get approval there to make sure we were conducting testing,” Williams said.
DACUT is now open for business, providing a place for Detroiters to purchase recreational marijuana in their city. DACUT aims to give back to the community as well.
In addition to repairing buildings that had once been an eyesore in the neighborhood, he sometimes hired Detroiters. They hope to double his staff in the near future.
“We are 25 now. Naturally, recreation is going to be more popular, so we just want to be able to offer the best possible service.”
Williams said it was unimaginable just a decade ago that he could provide a place for fellow Detroiters to make a living from marijuana.
“Many people who look like me have been put in jail not only for consuming it, but for trying to make a living from it. To see a dollar-sized industry built from scratch, it’s amazing,” Williams said.
