As of Thursday morning, it’s legal to partake in The Great Lakes State. But the privilege comes with some stipulations.
The law in Michigan states that each person over the age of 21 is permitted up carry to 2 and a half ounces of marijuana. They are also allowed to grow up to 12 plants out of public view and store up to 10 ounces, but an amount that large will have to be locked in a safe.
Also, it can’t be smoked in public, and that includes sitting in your car. Your employer is also still allowed to have their own guidelines for your use and continued employment. And as with alcohol you can face arrest if you get behind the wheel after smoking it.
Officials say they will be looking for signs of marijuana use at traffic stops, and you’re not going to want to bring it across the State Line into Indiana, either.
By the way: Places to buy marijuana in Michigan won’t be open until 2020.
