Just nine miles west of Detroit near the Detroit River is First Quality Medz in River Rouge. The recreational marijuana dispensary is the first of its kind in River Rouge and Metro Detroit. And it is Black-owned. The owner, Vetra Stephens, opened her doors this week on January 20.
“We want to grow the city,” Stephens told the Detroit television station WXYZ. “We want to be able to help with the taxes, the roads and the things recreational marijuana does for cities like this.”
