With the passing of Proposal 1 in November 2018, adults over 21 in Michigan are legally able to purchase, possess and use marijuana and marijuana infused edibles and grow up to 12 marijuana plants for personal use. They will also be permitted to keep up to 10 ounces of marijuana in their homes, so long as amounts over 2.5 ounces are secured in locked containers.
Although marijuana is now legal, there remain prohibitions on its use. It remains illegal to use marijuana on the campuses of the state’s universities and local communities some local communities have passed laws making the use of cannabis products in public spaces illegal. Additionally, there are new laws regulating the sale and purchase of marijuana and cannabis edibles. It is also important to understand individuals’ rights regarding marijuana use and driving under the influence laws.
