Cover Story: Who is Got Meds? - by Ben Horner
When we first met the folks from Got Meds a few years ago, we knew that Got Meds would become the premier medical marijuana establishment in Lansing. By lowering the cost of meds and resting a safe environment for patients and caregivers to socialize, Got Meds became the busiest place on Cedar Street, in Lansing's bustling south side commercial area.
The Got Meds community has continued to grow. Got Meds continued to be the best priced in the State. Then they did the unthinkable; in December Got Meds dropped the market by promoting $5 grams. This continues to this day and in some respects, Got Meds aggressive undercutting has set the market value of cannabis for the state from $10-$25 per gram in 2015, to $5-$20 per gram in 2016.
After dominating in the Lansing Market, Mike Barron of Got Meds decided to start competing in cannabis events. Over the last year, Got Meds has won several events, famous for their exclusive moon rocks caviar winning top marks in both the High Times Cannabis Cup and the MMM Report Traverse City Cup. Got Meds has won numerous awards over the last year.
As everyone waits for LARA and the newly formed Michigan Marijuana Board to start the licensing process, Got Meds has hopes to never have to close. Efforts are underway in Lansing and Flint to pass emergency legislation to phase in phase out the current system so patients do not have an interruption in their medical supplies.
