WAKEFIELD - In back-to-back Monday meetings, the Wakefield City Council and planning commission both voted to "file" a request for support from Superior Cannabis Solutions, LLC, in Bessemer.

The request came from a March 28 letter from Kathleen Whitburn, director of market and business development for the company.

"As business owners and investors in the medical marijuana industry and in the U.P. of Michigan, we are actively reaching out to you to establish our business within the city of Wakefield," Whitburn wrote in her letter to city officials.
