Recent research published by BDSA (formerly BDS Analytics) suggests that the global cannabis industry continues to grow despite COVID-19, with forecasts predicting that 2020 sales will reach $19.7 billion – an increase of 38% from 2019 ( One of Michigan’s fastest-growing cannabis brands, Gage Cannabis has expanded accordingly by offering recreational marijuana at its flagship Ferndale location. Gage is committed to building a solid reputation by providing top-tier cannabis experiences for the rapidly growing Michigan market.

“We have been looking forward to this day since we opened our doors in September 2019,” said Gage Cannabis President and Executive Vice President of Operations Mike Finos. “We are excited to extend the Gage experience to anyone aged 21 and over. Metro Detroit is home to our biggest consumers, and we’re ready to provide the community with quality products and a unique customer experience.”

Revenue projections by state budget planners suggest that the recreational marijuana market will be worth nearly $1 billion in fiscal 2021 with the potential to increase to $1.5 billion by 2023 (

“Michigan is one of the top cannabis markets in the U.S., and I am confident Gage is poised to continue building on its historical execution and fortifying its position as one of the top operators and brands in Michigan, as well as a name consumers look for across the United States,” said Gage Cannabis Executive Chairman Bruce Linton (
