“My location was marijuana 800 feet from a church that had a day care, and across the street from a liquor store. They don’t put these restrictions on any other business in Detroit. ” In the meantime, Godwin is working with SOH to make progress in other areas. They’ve begun a series of public community forums about cannabis. A few weeks ago the meeting was about investing in these businesses (no, don’t rush out and buy a bunch of penny stocks). They drew a nice little crowd to the Sankofa Life Center on Woodward Avenue across from Palmer Park, where things like licensing, small business startups, and stocks were discussed. In fact, a representative of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce spoke at the event. His salient message was that marijuana businesses are going to become very prominent, and that black people should not get left behind again when big economic changes are coming around. This past weekend, SOH held a forum to discuss the cannabis industry and how it affects the citizens of Detroit. SOH even invited members of the Metropolitan Detroit Community Action Coalition to join the panel, but no one from the group responded to the entreaty.
