Sanilac Co. marijuana grower traverses gray area selling ‘clones’

A Deckerville man is openly embarking into a gray area selling marijuana “clones,” while much of the state awaits lawmakers to work out clearer rules for recreational marijuana businesses.

More than 360 local governments, including more than 30 in St. Clair and Sanilac counties, have notified the state that they’ve opted out of allowing licensed pot businesses to set up shop since voters legalized recreational marijuana use.

But that hasn’t stopped pot growers from exploring options that aren’t clearly defined in the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act.

For Bretton Jones, launching Michigan Genetics aims to provide people with the ability to maintain their own plants — you can individually grow up to 12 indoors — without doing anything he believes is illegal.

“(It’s a) cannabis cutting when I cut that little piece off. As soon as that grows roots, it’s a plant,” Jones said. “And still, under Michigan state law, I can either sell you — since you’re just an average (person) above the age of 21 — I can sell you 12 plants at a time. Then, if I want to, I could take that cloner box you saw, and I can fill that up with 36 cuttings that don’t have roots, and I can sell as many of those cloners filled with cuttings as I want.”

Pot cloning is the process of producing genetically identical plants by cutting pieces away and placing them in the ground to root.

Jones argues it’s, “just one more business that is legal” because “there’s no legislation either preventing nor forbidding” it.

Why test the waters?

Last winter, state officials said they expected it to take at least a year before any sort of marketplace of licensed recreational businesses would be up and running.

As of April 18, 19 local townships and cities in Sanilac County and 12 in St. Clair County decided against adopting ordinances setting parameters, according to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

Officials in those communities and others, such as Port Huron, where no action has been taken, have said they’re waiting for the state to clarify the act.

Most of them also said they didn’t want their towns to be the “guinea pig” for something they don’t know the implications of quite yet.

Still, Jones said he thinks there’s a place for ventures like his — even if his is the first.

He said he knows other pot growers selling “clones” but none locally. There are additional avenues that direct those interested in clones to the state’s larger metropolitan areas for connections through online sites, such as or

There’s also another business, Far Out Chocolates, that claims to deliver marijuana candy to Huron, Sanilac and Tuscola counties. But organizers behind the business refused to be identified earlier this year.

Jones compared Michigan Genetics to cannabis gifting and said it’s an example of the businesses that crop up when local ordinances aren’t being adopted.

What’s being done about it?

In dealing with businesses that aren’t going through the state licensing process, LARA spokesman David Harns said, “You would need to ask that question of law enforcement.”

Sanilac County Sheriff Garry Biniecki said he hadn’t heard of any budding pot business, although he said he knew Jones.

He forwarded other questions to Sanilac County Drug Task Force Director Jim Johnson, who wasn’t immediately available Tuesday. The sheriff did express some initial concern over the idea of a pot chocolate business, adding, “If there’s the potential for kids to get (access to) it, it wouldn’t be good.”

St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon admitted he’s been vocally against recreational marijuana, having previously cited the original proposal as the state’s “cart before the horse.”

On Friday, he said he hadn’t heard of any “pot entrepreneurs” testing the waters of the state law’s more ambiguous areas locally. Donnellon also said he didn’t have a lot of sympathy for those who have to wait in the meantime before launching any sort of licensed business.

“We’re going to see continuously these things come up that we don’t know how to handle,” Donnellon said. He added that he’d look to the county prosecutor’s office or state attorney general for guidance.

Port Huron Police Chief Joe Platzer also directed concerns about the gray areas to prosecutors.

St. Clair County Prosecutor Michael Wendling said he was “reserving comment” on the issue — for now.

“We haven’t really had a case under the new law,” he said. To anyone like Jones considering anything, he advised them to be sure they understand what’s still illegal.

“I would tell them to be extremely careful,” Wendling said.

Jones said he hadn’t consulted any second-party experts, believing he’d rightfully interpreted state law.

“That’s basically it. I’m selling them,” Jones said.

    Marijuana Clones

Our growers follow a very simple cultivation process. Depending on the strain, clones take approximately 10-14 days to root well.

Each new tray is labeled with a date and monitored until roots emerge and randomly selected clones pass a light “tug test”.

Our simple method ensures patients receive Michigan clones with a well established root system.

Clones are approximately 3″ to 5″ tall and grown in hydro-safe cubes or plugs.

Weed clones that develop an exposed, excessive root structure require additional water & nutrients.

To avoid dehydration and nutrient deficiency, mature weed teens are transplanted into a larger growing mediums, i.e. coco & soil containers or hydrotin pots.

After 2 – 3 weeks, our teens grow to become 8″ to 18″ tall under MH lamps.

Clones Donation Teens Donation
4 – 5 $35/ea 8 – 10″ $50/ea
6 – 11 $30/ea 12″ $65/ea
12 – 23 $28/ea 14 – 16″ $80/ea
24 – 49 $25/ea +18″ $100/ea
50 – 99 $22/ea
+100 $20/ea

Note: Discounts for Military & Disabled.

The average order is 24 plants and generally the clones are hand selected based off root development and foliar health. Clones are hand selected for patients so each member receives the best marijuana plants.

If for any reason you recognize an issue with your plants or begin to experience problems, contact us immediately with photos. Patients are given as much time as needed to inspect their order during pick-up.

The Strainbank has established a reputation for quality. If our nursery is contacted weeks later, there’s not much that can be done to help correct the problem and learn new preventative solutions.
