Cannabis Regulatory Agency Reaches Agreement with Detroit Provisioning Center to Prohibit Future Ownership or Employment

In order to ensure the health, safety, and security of the public and integrity of the state’s marijuana business operations, today the Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) announced an agreement (link, link) with Klean Herbal Solutions, LLC dba Stash Detroit (Klean), located at 10015 W. Fort St., Detroit, Michigan 48209 which will prohibit the business and the business owner, Mario Seman, from participating in the Michigan marijuana industry in any capacity in the future.

“Licensed businesses must follow the laws and rules that govern the cannabis industry, and when they don’t, they must be held accountable for their actions,” said CRA Executive Director Brian Hanna. “The result of this agreement means that Mr. Seman will never again be allowed to participate in Michigan’s cannabis industry.

The details of Klean’s violations can be found in the formal complaints issued by the CRA:

To summarize:

The ground adjacent to Klean’s business buckled in September 2021, causing damage that required the building to be demolished. Klean did not reopen and has not been in operation since that date.

Klean’s license (PC-000339) is expired and shall not be renewed, reinstated, reissued, or reactivated – limited or otherwise – at any future date. Klean’s supplemental applicant, Mario Seman, is also the sole supplemental applicant for entity prequalification record no. ERG-000459. Prequalification for ERG-000459 is withdrawn and will be placed in lapsed status.

Both Klean and Seman are permanently prohibited from applying for or otherwise seeking any new marijuana business license in the State of Michigan.

Prior to the road buckling, on April 21, 2021, the CRA received a complaint about employees smoking in an upstairs area connected to the Klean facility. While investigating the complaint, the CRA visited Klean’s facility and discovered an upstairs unit being used that was not inspected nor included in the floor plan submitted to the CRA. During a follow-up visit, the CRA discovered partially smoked marijuana product on the floor of the upstairs unit. The upstairs unit was not subject to video surveillance as required and the CRA observed Klean employees moving product through the door to the unapproved unit.

After the building was damaged by the road buckling, the CRA received an anonymous complaint and photograph – on September 16, 2021 – showing individuals removing items in black trash bags from the facility shortly after the building was damaged.

Klean removed marijuana product from the facility in these trash bags and stored it at an  unapproved location. On September 17, 2021, with CRA approval, Klean transported the same trash bags from the unapproved location to a licensed facility for storage.

On September 21, 2021, the CRA visited the licensed facility where the trash bags containing marijuana product were transported and stored examine the marijuana product Klean recovered from the collapsed facility. While reviewing the marijuana product in the statewide monitoring system (Metrc), the CRA discovered discrepancies between the information on the product tags and the information recorded in Metrc.
