The COVID-19 virus has basically shut down the US economy. Only those businesses deemed “essential” can continue to operate. Luckily the cannabis industry has gained this “essential” status and has been able to continue selling product to the marketplace. Michigan’s Common Citizen brand is not just in business but is expanding during these trying times.
Cannabis companies employ nearly 240,000 people in the US. In a time where many small businesses are laying people off, a cannabis company in Michigan is hiring. Sure, it is only a few dozen people, but it’s a few dozen families that will be able to make ends meet while so many more are suffering. We applaud the leadership at Common Citizen for their commitment to the community, and hope we get to hear more stories like this in the future.
