How and when did your collective start up?
Got Meds has been established for approximately four years. We needed a place for caregivers and patients to purchase and medicate in a safe and friendly environment.
What’s the story behind the name of your collective?
We wanted a name that was self-explanatory. Got Meds . . . Says it all.
What does your collective offer patients that they can’t find anywhere else?
We offer our lounge and services 365 days a year and are open until 2 a.m., Fridays and Saturdays. We are also the only dispensary in the Lansing area with such an expansive line of THC/CBD concentrates and infused products.
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
Many more citizens are realizing the medical benefits of our industry. Like in every industry, there are always a small percent of individuals who abuse the privilege, blurring the legitimacy of our advancements and perpetuating negative stereotypes of skeptical conservatives. However, we work hard, every day, to make strides and disprove those skeptics by caring for the health and well-being of our patients, above all else.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a collective? Biggest joys?
The main challenge we’ve faced so far is getting members of our city and state government to realize the health and monetary benefits, among a wide range of other benefits, this industry can bring to the state and individual communities.
The biggest joy is being able to help patients find healthier alternatives to damaging, synthetic, medication. Through our patients, we see tangible proof and evidence of the medical benefits, walking in and out of our doors every day.
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your collective?
Got Meds’ core values are centralized around our customers. Our patients’ needs are of the utmost importance, and our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
If someone wanted to open a collective and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Go big or go home. Also be prepared for a lot of push-back but, in the long run, there’s always going to be push-back . . . suck it up, and push back yourself!
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the cannabis community?
Got Meds is dedicated to the spread of cannabis knowledge and healing, through compassionate care and innovation.
