Marijuana legalization advocates achieved big gains during this year’s midterm elections. On November 6, three more states legalized marijuana. Michigan voters approved a ballot initiative that legalizes marijuana for adults who are age 21 or older, and allows for the sale of flower, concentrates and cannabis-infused edibles.
Michigan will allow adults to cultivate up to 12 plants for personal use, and to possess up to 10 ounces of marijuana products stored in their home and to 2.5 ounces in public. Public consumption of marijuana, however, is prohibited. Michigan is now the tenth state to allow recreational marijuana, and the second largest behind California in terms of population.
