    I just tried to leave a comment and the same thing as tyhe site, I have to leave my data so here is some data. I don’t want to sign in, I don’t want to remember a password, or pin, and I don’t want to be one of your marketing contacts, or have my e-mail shared from a mining base. I just want to know where and how to buy Michigan without becomming a mining data source under another premise like: doing something good for my state.
