Cannabis is legal in Michigan these days, and that includes both medical and recreational forms. Ever since becoming legal, the cannabis industry in Michigan has been on fire.

Now, there’s a new, marijuana-friends bed and breakfast in Michigan. This spot has become a regular stop for travelers coming through Michigan that love their cannabis, plus local marijuana enthusiasts.

Copper House Detroit is located 17418 Monica Street in Detroit. They have an interesting story behind launching the bed and breakfast.

“As a Black- and Queer-owned business, our mission is rooted in activism and equity, they state on their website. “In some areas, our community is 10x more likely to be criminalized for cannabis yet we still account for less than 4% of ownership within the industry. This led us to open our home for education, activism and community. If you’re a conscious cannabis consumer who wants to make an impact in what you do — you’ve found your home away from home at Copper House.”

As for the personalities behind the business, they state, “We’re Jess and Cara Jackson — the dreamers and couple behind Copper House Detroit. What began as a prototype, has become a community — in our first year of operation alone, we’ve hosted over 200 guests and learned how to design offerings based on community needs.”

The business is doing incredibly well. “Our vision for cannabis is one that is equitable both socially and financially,” they state on their website. “Jess has served as a member of the Social Equity Work Group with the City of Detroit and coordinates policy education sessions with legislatures through her neighborhood association in Detroit, Bagley Community Council of which she is Vice President.” Find more about Copper House Detroit here.
