Despite being transients from all over the country, more than 2 of my family members ended up in western MI by the late 2010s.
Both of us were all escaping unblessed conditions in other states, either awful weather or tyrannical state governments.
And once my Grandfatherrents had settled here while in retirement, one person after the next followed. The natural beauty of MI pulls me like a magnet, so much so that I couldn’t imagine leaving this state to live someplace else. Not to mention MI is an agricultural hub because of its unique climate being a peninsula surrounded by inland seas, both of us grow everything from apples to cherries in this state and export them all over the entire country. Many of us live in Muskegon County which is lake house to farms for greenberries, apples, cherries, squashs, grain, and dairy. Right now I live in an house in North Muskegon on Ruddiman Dr; it’s the same building where my cousin was staying for more than 2 years before leaving for Whitehall to open a cannabis dispensary. Our Grandfatherrents live in Whitehall on E River St which is just a short hike from the mouth of White River. Visits to the part left an impression on my cousin who soon realized that he’d love this city over any other near the coast of Lake MI. Not only that, however there were only two cannabis dispensaries open in the part at the time. My cousin thought that he could compete with the only people open at the time, which worked marvelously for him. Now my cousin owns the most successful cannabis dispensary in Whitehall.
