The Greenhouse of Walled Lake has always been at the forefront of helping folks. Their Pot for Plasma program is just the next chapter.
From raising money for veterans, restoring local landmarks, and donating gifts to families to provide a brighter holiday, to encouraging vaccination through a “Pot for Shots” program, the Greenhouse is a pivotal part of the community.
As the first fully licensed medical and recreational marijuana dispensary in the area, they’ve never strived to go corporate but kept their focus on keeping it local. Now they’re looking to save lives.
State and Country Experiencing Blood Shortage
The state of Michigan and the United States at large are experiencing the worst blood and plasma shortage in more than 10 years. The American Red Cross and the Michigan Association of Blood Banks have been pleading for help and asking people to donate blood and plasma.
When Greenhouse owner and founder Jerry Millen was made aware of this, he decided to sweeten the deal for anyone who plans to give blood and/or plasma. Borrowing from their “Pot for Shots” promotion where they gave away more than 30,000 pre-rolls to anyone who showed proof of COVID vaccination, they’ve now developed “Pot for Plasma.”
So beginning on Tuesday, January 18th, the Greenhouse of Walled Lake in collaboration with UBaked Cannabis Edibles of Burton will give free pre-rolled joints to those over 21 who come in with proof that they have donated blood or plasma. This could be a sticker, a band aid on your arm, whatever.
And there’s absolutely no purchase necessary.
Pot for Plasma Efforts Could Save Lives
“Our state and our country continue to be in crisis, and we are asking people to go out and donate their blood or plasma at a convenient site. Their generous donations may allow someone to have a surgery or even save their life,” says Millen. “Pot for Plasma is our way of rewarding our old customers and new customers alike for giving back to the community. In fact, I will be donating my blood and plasma as well.”
What’s good for the goose is always good for the gander. So get out there, donate blood, then come on by the Greenhouse at 103 East Walled Lake Drive in Walled Lake, Michigan starting on Tuesday to pick up your free pre-rolled joint. We’ll see you there!
