I thought that when medical and recreational marijuana were legalized in Michigan; they gave us amounts of how much marijuana you could have in your possession.
I was shocked at how much they were allowing people to purchase.
You had to be twenty-one to purchase marijuana, and you needed a recent photograph ID or a valid driver’s license. Adults over 21 can possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana, or grow up to 12 plants for personal use inside their homes. Personal use limits on private property are up to ten ounces of marijuana. Medical marijuana patients have the same regulations and possession or cultivation limits as recreational users. I was trying to figure out how many rolled marijuana joints I could get out of of 2.5 ounces of marijuana. I remembered buying an eighth ounce from a street vendor, and how my friends and I had plenty to enjoy ourselves. I couldn’t imagine how many joints I could get out of 10 ounces of marijuana. Then I looked back and realized the law stated I could have up to 12 plants for personal use inside my home. Properly tended for, marijuana plants could produce a pound or more of marijuana, per plant. I knew the marijuana laws were pretty lenient here in Lowell, MI, but this was a crazy amount of marijuana, so long as they used it only in your home and not in public. I knew I had to go back and read the laws again. I was sure I had read the rules governing possession of marijuana wrongly.
