Former Detroit Lions Make Play For Michigan Marijuana

Former Detroit Lions lineman Rob Sims and wide receiver Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, areĀ investors in a massive indoor grow facility in Michigan near the Michigan/Indiana border.

Two Former Detroit Lions have teamed up again – this time, to invest in Michigan’s thriving marijuana industry.

Former Lineman Rob Sims and wide receiver Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, areĀ investors in a 12,000-square-foot indoor grow facility,Ā just outside of Webberville, Michigan.Ā The pair also looks to open their first medical/recreational marijuana retail location by the end of November, 10 minutes from the Indiana border, in Niles.

They realized they shared interestsĀ inĀ entrepreneurship as teammates inĀ Detroit and have since turned their focus to Michigan real estate investment properties. And though quiet about its useĀ in their playing days, both admit that they used marijuana to treat their pain offĀ the gridiron.

ā€œIt was more natural and holistic than other options, such asĀ opioids, for pain and inflammation,ā€ Johnson told theĀ South Bend Tribune. ā€œOther options are needed that are less damaging or addictive.ā€

ā€œWe think it could help with MS, Parkinsonā€™s and other neurodegenerative diseases,ā€ Sims said. ā€œThere might be additional medical benefits that we donā€™t know about but are worth investigating.ā€

They chose the location in Niles because of the size of the building, good parking, and proximity toĀ the Indiana border. Local officials are excited about the venture.

The city is ā€œalways taking emails for vendors interested in grows, processing, transport, and labs,ā€ said Sanya Vitale, Niles community development director, who noted that the industry has already created more jobs.
