MT. MORRIS TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (08/14/19) - The first medical marijuana shop in Mt. Morris Township is like most.
But Light 'N Up Provisioning and Microbuddery is set to open later this month.
"We're a couple Genesee County boys that were born, raised, lived here, made our careers here. For us, it wasn't about having a ton of money and being able to put together a million-dollar facility, it's about patients," said co-owner Kyle Cohee.
He co-owns the shop on Pier North Boulevard in Mt. Morris Township. His philosophy is to take a customer-centered approach in addressing the specific needs of each person.
"Watching people get help. Watching people not have to use medicine, alternative medicines, different types of opiates and stuff," Cohee said.
Light 'N Up was just recently licensed by the state. Cohee and his partner and general manager plan on selling tinctures, edibles, flowers, cartridges, oils, CBD products and apparel.
"We have some great product specialists here that have extensive knowledge of what it is that they're actually giving our patients. So I think we're going to provide the patient with the best experience in this area," said General Manager Brandi Rice-Simpson.
Cohee said marijuana isn't a cure-all, but it can help many people.
"It's not a solver. It's not a cure. Hopefully one day we come to that with the federal laws and everything, but as of today I just want to hopefully help some people," he said.
Light 'N Up Provisioning and Microbuddery is set to open by the end of August.
