Santa Barbara County has released a list of 20 applicants being considered for cannabis dispensary business licenses and will now rank them based on “neighborhood compatibility” and site inspections.

The county Board of Supervisors decided to limit dispensaries in unincorporated areas to six, with only one in each of the community plan areas of Orcutt, Los Alamos, Santa Ynez, Isla Vista/Goleta Valley, Eastern Goleta Valley and Toro Canyon/Summerland.

Some local cities have decided to permit a limited number of dispensaries (Santa Barbara and Goleta), to permit an unlimited number of dispensaries (Lompoc) or ban them (Santa Maria and Carpinteria).

Last week, the county posted on its cannabis policy page that the 20 applicants made it past a business plan review by the county and a third-party firm, Hinderliter, de Llamas and Associates. The county has contracted with the same firm to do cannabis-related tax compliance review.

After the next phase of review, county staff will create a ranked list of applicants for each community plan area, and only the No. 1 applicant for each area “will be invited to start the permit and business license application process.”

CLOSE

Greenhouse of Walled Lake owner Jerry Millen buys 301 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from Jennifer Slayden, 39, of Oakland County on Mar. 5, 2021, after Slayden, a mother of two Girl Scouts, was disappointed about her daughter’s lack of opportunity to sell more Girl Scout Cookies after the Girl Scouts of the USA are forbidding the Oakland County Girls Scouts to sell their cookies in front of the Marijuana dispensary Greenhouse of Walled Lake after they had gangbuster sales last weekend. (Photo: Mandi Wright, Detroit Free Press)

A Walled Lake marijuana  dispensary seemed like an ideal place to sell Girl Scout cookies after some local troops set up shop outside the facility and sold 1000 boxes last weekend.

At least that was the case until the Girl Scouts of the United States of America  got wind and frowned upon the idea — setting off a storm on social media and leaving scout leaders scrambling to smooth over the hubbub, calling it a “misunderstanding.”

After arranging to go back this Friday and Saturday, local Girl Scout members and families were told not to sell cookies in a “facility where they’re not allowed to shop,”

WALLED LAKE, Mich. (FOX 2) – A weekend Girl Scout cookie sale has been canceled after Girl Scouts of the USA ordered that girls couldn’t sell outside of a Walled Lake marijuana dispensary.

The girls were slated to sell their treats outside of Greenhouse of Walled Lake after they had an extremely successful time there last weekend — selling more than 1,000 boxes of cookies in the same spot in less than six hours. 

“I am incredibly disappointed that the powers that be who make up Girl Scouts of the USA are dumping cold water on the entrepreneurial spirit of these young ladies,” owner Jerry Millen said. “The Greenhouse of Walled Lake is a legal entity and a major contributor to the community. Scouts are seen all the time selling these delicious treats in front of grocery stores, liquor stores, etc. I am hoping that these folks reconsider their position.”

Located at 2712 Portage Street, COOKIES’ storefront in Kalamazoo is Gage’s seventh retail location in Michigan. It will carry the entire family of COOKIES offerings, including COOKIES, Lemonnade, Runtz, Powerzzzup Genetics, Minntz and Grandiflora product lines and will be open for curbside pick-up only from 8 a.m ET until 10 p.m. ET. The newest provisioning center extends access to quality cannabis products to customers throughout Western Michigan and regions bordering Lake Michigan, including Chicago, IL and South Bend, IN. During the opening weekend in late February, Gage hosted raffles and offered promotional giveaways for medical patients, and comedian and YouTube personality Carlos Davis visited the storefront.

The 3,000 square-foot retail location will create 30+ new employment opportunities in Kalamazoo and is open to both medical and adult-use consumers. To further support neighboring communities, Gage has launched a nearly $1 million social equity program in the past year that will award grants up to $50,000 to cannabis entrepreneurs in 19 social equity cities designated by the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency.

“The Midwest is an important part of COOKIES’ overall expansion plan, and our partnership with Gage Cannabis has been integral,” said Berner, Founder and CEO of COOKIES. “We’ve seen tremendous

How To Use Oral Concentrate Syringes For Exact Dosage Measurement

One of the challenges faced by medical marijuana users is determining and delivering the proper dosage of medicine. Another is how to add cannabis oil concentrates to food or to wax/shatter vape pens in a way that is clean and doesn’t make a mess. Plastic syringes can also be used to accurately measure and deliver medicines in liquid form.

Many Florida dispensaries sell cannabis oil concentrates in convenient 500 and 1,000-milligram syringes. These concentrates are quite potent — generally anywhere from 60 to 90 percent THC. A 1,000-milligram concentrate syringe will contain anywhere from 600 to 800 milligrams of THC. A single dose the size of a grain of rice might be all the patient needs for relief. Widely hailed for its potency and efficacy, Rick Simpson Oil, aka RSO oil is one of the original concentrate syringes.

Squeeze a half grain of rice sized to a whole grain, and simply eat it. If the concentrate is hard to get out, submerge the tip in warm water for 5 – 10 seconds. Then squeeze the desired amount out. Remember, a little goes a long way.

What are these products? What are they used for? And how are they used?

What Are Medical Marijuana Oil Syringes?

Medical marijuana syringes, also called applicators, are similar in appearance to other syringes used for administering medicine but don’t have a needle. They are basically dosage measurement and delivery tools. And, as we mentioned, some syringes come pre-filled…Read More
