Translove Energies compassion center lights up Eastern Market
Tuesday, October 05, 2010
Michigan's changing marijuana laws are firing up a new growth industry in Detroit: pot. Model D has previously covered the Urban Garden Center in Southwest Detroit and plans to continue to write about compassion centers that have cropped up around town (there's at least three that we've noticed).
It seems appropriate to begin with Translove Energies, a compassion collective located in Eastern Market -- since one of the operation's partners is none other than John Sinclair, long an advocate for drug law reform. Since serving jail time in the late 1960's for giving a narc a couple of joints, he has been a very visible presence in the marijuana community.
Sinclair's partner in legalities is Holice P. Wood, a longtime resident of the Gratiot block on which the business is located.
By appointment only. Call 313-262-1886. Translove is located at 1486 Gratiot, on the Service Street Block. Read more about the block here, and follow the Metro Times' coverage of the joint efforts of Wood and Sinclair here and here.
