A medical marijuana provider has opened its doors along W. Broad St. in Chesaning.

The ReLeaf Provisioning Center features cannabis flower plus THC distillate, among other products.

Store manager Mike Lumetta says there are already plans to expand service to recreational users by year’s end with those sales beginning in the spring. Lumetta oversees 6 employees in a roughly 2,000 square foot former hardware store.

He praised village officials for their cooperation in the planning process over the last 2.5 years leading up to the Thursday, August 29 grand opening.
