Smoke’s Chocolate, a new shop that opened in December, coinciding with the legalization of recreational marijuana in Michigan, is a chocolate shop owned by 30-year-old Washtenaw Community College student Marc Bernard. His offer? “Buy some chocolate, get some weed,” the slogan of Smoke’s Chocolate, which Bernard operates out of his apartment. Customers spend $10-$15 for chocolate and a delivery driver also brings a green gift to the buyer (those 21 and older). While recreational marijuana still can’t be sold by retailers just yet, it’s legal to gift, which turned into a great business plan for Bernard, who sold out his original supply of chocolate within three days.
