I love this!

What are people's thoughts on these big MSOs really coming hard for Mass? Jushi paid $100Million to enter the market and AWH finally opened their flagship location. With such big players coming in, is that going to affect product quality or diversity in license holders? What are your thoughts on big vs small companies in an adult use market?

I think that's a great point, Matt. License acquisition is as competitive as ever, and businesses of all sizes need to be hyper-focused on the quality and consistency of their products. Diversity within license holders has been a challenge since day 1. I think we as an industry need to ensure that our lobbyists and advocacy/policy groups continue to champion equality and equity in every conversation they have on behalf of the industry while talking to policymakers and local legislators.

Whats the latest trends going on for the Michigan scene?

Thanks for plugging in Michigan, Taylor Vandevoorde!

Regarding Detroit's social equity program, otherwise known as the Legacy Program, applications are now on hold until May 27th as a result of an existing lawsuit.

The lawsuit Lowe v. The City of Detroit was initiated by a Detroit resident who claims the program discriminates against those who are not long-term Detroit residents (you have to have been a Detroit resident for at least 10 of the last 30 years in order to qualify).
