In Detroit Land
Former Detroit Red Wings Star and Stanley Cup Winner Launches Cannabis Brand - DBusiness Magazine
The brand’s Pucker Up pre-rolls are expected to hit Pincanna store shelves on Thursday in Kalkaska, Mich. The rolls also will be available for purchase at three additional retail locations across the state. They combine THC and CBD with a five-to-one ratio.
“We’re excited to launch with the Pucker Up strain as this is the perfect plant profile for everyone to enjoy…even the novice,” McCarty says. “And, we’ve of course included CBD, to help us all chill out.”
For Detroit Red Wings, drafted fourth has been boom or bust
When Steve Yzerman makes the fourth overall selection in the2020 NHL draft, it will be the third time the franchise has picked at that spot. He himself was the most recent, selected in 1983. In this edition of the Detroit Red Wings Revisited, we look at the other No. 4 pick.

Some stuff to look forward to in modified CBA: Flat salary cap (unless changed, numbers were $81.5M next two years, $82.5M in 2022-23); cap on escrow (starting at 20 per cent next season, moving down after that); return to Olympics (pending agreement with IOC)...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 1, 2020
This will mean next couple of seasons are going to be extremely tight for clubs without cap flexibility.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 1, 2020
Interestingly enough, Detroit is no longer one of the teams without cap flexibility. Why am I templing my fingers? No reason.
If the NHL/NHLPA finalize things, if the players ratify it, and subject to negotiation with IOC, sounds like proposed CBA extension includes the NHL’s return to Olympic participation covering both 2022 and 2026. Which is— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) July 1, 2020
