June 18: Freddie's pot delivery service has opened up service to Brighton, Howell, Fenton, South Lyon, Hartland areas.

Can Amazon be far behind?

Tort lawyer Barry Goodman, of Goodman Acker, said his company started small, delivering to customers within about 15 miles of his Clio, Michigan store.  They expanded the service area into Bay City, Saginaw and Midland, then to Mt. Pleasant and Big Rapids. Now they've set their sights on the prohibitionist deserts of Livingston and Oakland Counties.

According to the Livingston Daily, under Michigan law each delivery driver is limited to 10 deliveries or 15 ounces of product per excursion.  What began as a three hour wait and $45/order minimum has become a requirement of 48 hours advance notice and a $200 minimum order. They've driven up to three hours, according to Goodman. It's unclear whether that's one way or round trip.

Jennifer Timar's June 18 Livingston Daily report introduces Freddies and Northfield Township's half dozen proposed pot businesses. Her report includes photos and locations of the vacant and unused Whitmore Lake locations and storefronts they want to fill, also an interview with Northfield Township Manager Steven Aynes. Aynes slightly misrepresents the Township voters' support for legal marijuana as "evenly divided." That's not true. Two to one in favor is a better picture.

Scroll down for the PC meeting Agenda and packet. But that's boring. From the owner's photos on google image, here is Freddie's:
