Michigan became the 10th state to legalize recreational marijuana on Nov. 6, 2018 when voters passed Prop 1 on the ballot. It allow adults to possess up to 2.5 ounces of flower and 15 grams of concentrate as well as grow up to 12 plants. The tax rate is 10%.
All of the stores are transitioning from medical to recreational sales. Eight licenses have been awarded and another 73 are awaiting approval. However, 80% of Michigan cities and towns have so far opted out of legal marijuana sales.
