Berner has six stores in California and this one in Detroit is his seventh. He’s confident the store will bring a lot of customers to the area.
DETROIT (FOX 2) – A medical marijuana dispensary known out in California opened its first store in Detroit Friday.
“I actually care about the patients, I care about the plant more than anything,” Berner told us Friday during the shop’s grand opening. “I connect with people through my music and just really take this all in as a blessing. I think a lot of people just look at the money side of things, but this is unifying people all around the world. It’s promoting peace and it’s something we can all bond over.”
Cookies is expected to employ 40 Detroiters.

The store is based out of San Francisco and was founded by rapper Berner and his partner, Jigga. The store’s brand has become known for its top-tier genetics and its love for music.
