10 common cannabis questions and answers

Good question. Though we know it would be convenient, under Michigan law, we cannot allow minors in our stores. For our locations that only sell recreational cannabis, patrons must be at least 21 years of age. For medical locations, guests ages 18-20 are permitted, so long as they have a valid MMMP registration.

No, cannabis consumption in public is prohibited. In general, cannabis can be consumed on private property (such as your home), which is a non-public environment. Additionally, cannabis can be consumed at a designated cannabis consumption establishment or temporary cannabis event that is licensed by the State of Michigan.

Where Michigan sales are legal, an individual can purchase up to 2.5 ounces, however, an individual cannot have more than 15 grams of marijuana concentrate at one time.  If you’re not sure how much a product from TFS contains, please ask your budtender!

The main difference is that medical marijuana contains higher potency levels in order to treat serious ailments and conditions. A medical consumer must have a government-issued medical card and be at least 18 years of age. For recreational marijuana, individuals must be 21 years or older and have a valid government-issued ID.

When visiting a dispensary for the first time, make sure to get into the right mindset, ignore the stigma, and enjoy! Have a goal in mind for what type of effects you are looking to feel or not feel. Let them know it’s your first cannabis shopping experience! Bring cash, your valid state-issued ID, and expect a short wait before you enter the budroom. Once you’re inside, take your time, and above all, trust your budtender as a guide on your cannabis adventure!

From vapes to edibles, flower and beyond, our customers and budtenders alike have been excited about LightSky Farm’s Live Resin Carts for their exceptional quality, Glacier Cannabis for their excellent packaging & strain selection (not to mention the smoke); Wana Gummies for their options (1:1, vegan friendly, fast acting, full spectrum and have you seen the flavors??). Honorable mentions to Fluresh and Fwaygo for the great deals they always offer!

The cool part about consuming cannabis is that everyone’s experience is different, and depending on the category of product you decide to use, that experience can differ as well. Some customers say their high gives them a relaxed, sleepy type of a high. While others say it gives them energy and helps them to socialize. Tell your TFS budtender what you’re looking for and they can help recommend products that other customers have used to feel a similar experience!

There definitely are a lot of choices when it comes to shopping for cannabis. What sets The Fire Station apart is our commitment to above and beyond customer service, and the efforts we make to be a positive contributor in the communities we serve. TFS is a family-owned business that has always put people first, and customers can sense an inclusive, welcoming spirit when they walk into any of our locations and interact with our staff.

– Kelsey Potes, Marketing Director

Absolutely. Michigan law requires all products to be shelf stable and comply with specific packaging requirements. Under current regulations, fresh baked items being sold out of our stores is not allowed. We do hope that we will see something like this in the near future!

– Logan Stauber and Stosh Wasik, Owners

Under Michigan law, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana.
