BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — A group involved in supplying medical marijuana in Battle Creek is among those using a new business model designed with aims of operating legally in Michigan.
Brock Korreck, owner of the Higher Expectations Medical Partnership Compassion Club, tells the Battle Creek Enquirer (http://bcene.ws/10pIxnS ) that his collective now charges caregivers a one-time $100 fee for any new patient they are connected with through the collective and a $100 monthly fee to use the facility as a place of transfer.
Patients don't pay fees under the collective's new business model.
Michigan voters in 2008 approved marijuana for some chronic medical conditions, but the Michigan Supreme Court in February slammed the door on marijuana shops. The court said owners of so-called dispensaries aren't entitled to operate a business that facilitates patient-to-patient sales.
