Elissa Robinson Detroit Free Press Published 8:31 AM EDT Jun 12, 2019 If you’re looking to become an expert in cannabis — both the chemistry and business sides of the business — the Upper Peninsula is the place to be. Northern Michigan University in Marquette and Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie are among the few colleges in the nation to offer degree programs for students looking to break into the industry. But if those graduates want to stay in the U.P. for a job in the industry or find a place to score some legal weed north of the Mackinac Bridge, good luck. Only one medical marijuana dispensary in the U.P. has been licensed by the state. Free Press reporter Kathleen Gray talked to co-owners Penny and Ryan Milkey, the couple behind Northern Specialty Health in Houghton, for a closer look at why weed is such a lonely business in the U.P.

What is joint venture
Elissa Robinson Detroit Free Press Published 1:51 PM EDT May 29, 2019 "The table was set and the amuse-bouche was already on our plates as a small group of Chef Enid Parham’s friends and followers began to arrive for one of her recent dinners. Meant to awaken the palate, the amuse course is traditionally a single bite of food that offers a preview of the meal to come, a little gratis gift from the kitchen to welcome guests. But this dinner was a little different. Instead of a preciously plated morsel, we were offered a pre-rolled joint — a marijuana cigarette comprised of the hybrid strain Chem Glue — a fitting aperitif before a meal infused with cannabis." ... Wait, wait, wait. Dinner starts with a joint? Freep restaurant critic Mark Kurlyandchik spent an evening with chef Parham as she served up an entire meal of cannabis-infused foods. Here's what happened. Spoiler alert: Mark was definitely feeling … [Read more...] about Joint Venture: Dinner at Bonnie’s Kitchen started with a joint
Melody Baetens The Detroit News Published 5:34 PM EST Jan 16, 2019 Car and truck fans from all over the world will descend on downtown Detroit this month as part of the North American International Auto Show, and they're going to get hungry. As they may have heard from the national food media, our dining options continue to swell downtown and in the surrounding area. Whether you've never been to downtown Detroit before or it's just been a minute, here's a guide to what's changed around Cobo Center since the last NAIAS: One of the newest restaurants downtown is San Morello, inside the Shinola Hotel at 1400 Woodward, just steps from Campus Martius.

Amazon elected to wait until the end of the year before delivering its huge present to some lucky city: the location of its second headquarters (and is there a third HQ in that smiley box, too?)The fourth quarter is when the e-commerce and cloud giant historically racks up most of its sales. And a big part of Amazon’s hunt for the so-called HQ2 always seemed about generating favorable publicity for the trillion-dollar Godzilla’s monster holiday season. The whole process, said John Landry, a startup investor from Wayland, was “a stunt to derive incredible amounts of free, Amazon-worshipping ‘advertising.’ They got mayors, pols, and business leaders all juiced up about what Amazon could do for their cities, and in turn Amazon got to hear just what the cities would … [Read more...] about Why being stiffed by Amazon is a good thing
To the uninformed outsider, the transition from petrol and diesel power to electric might not seem like such a big deal - just fit motors and batteries instead of engines and fuel tanks, right? A visit to Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart and Porsche’s new ‘factory within a factory’ tells a very different story. Here, the German sports car maker is investing €6 billion in going electric, with several all-new, battery-powered vehicles due between now and 2022. They will be built using a new production method, dubbed Porsche Production 4.0, and the range is expected to include a mid-engined sports car, an SUV, a crossover, and the company’s first electric vehicle, the Taycan. Pronounced ‘Tie-can’, this car has demanded the hiring of 1,200 new employees and is described by Porsche as offering the driving position of a 911, but with much of the practicality of its saloon car, the Panamera. To be launched in late-2019, the Taycan will produce 600 horsepower, … [Read more...] about This car maker is investing €6 billion in going electric
