Michigan’s first-ever licensed marijuana consumption lounge is on track to open later this month in Hazel Park. Hot Box Social will be located at 23610 John R. in Hazel Park. It’s going to be a gathering spot for meetings and events, where marijuana can be consumed safety and legally. Hot Box Social is owned by Trucenta.
At first, the lounge will be only for private events. Eventually, owners hope to open it to the public. The venue includes 3,000 square feet of indoor space that is able to accommodate around 200 people. Plans are in the works to open a 5,000 square foot back patio this summer.
As Hot Box Social is a licensed consumption lounge, marijuana products need to be delivered from a licensed dispensary and used in the area.
“We are honored that Michigan has awarded us the state’s first license for a consumption lounge,” Nowfal Akash, Trucenta chief information officer, said in a statement. “Our plan is to first use the space for corporate, social, and special events. Come summer, we’ll start scheduling events so the public can experience Hot Box Social with consumption-friendly activities like social gatherings, educational opportunities, and arts-focused activities.”
