Michigan Recreational Pot Legalization: Will College Students Be Allowed To Smoke Weed In Public?

2 years ago



Michigan is to become the first Midwest state to legalize marijuana for more than medical purposes, reports ABC News. The November 6 election “endorsed recreational use by adults who are at least 21.” Still, not everyone is happy with this, as there’s already been some tension in Michigan. The Typical Student team learned what’s in it for college students.    


Michigan Marijuana Legalization: Key Facts



Here’s what Michigan residents 21+ need to know about marijuana legalization in their state:

  • possess or transport up to 2.5 ounces (70.8 grams) of marijuana;
  • give 2.5 ounces (70.8 grams) to another person, but not for payment;
  • grow up to 12 plants, but not in public view.


Can Michigan College Students Consume Marijuana On Campuses?




As told by ABC News, Michigan colleges and universities have made prior statements they wouldn’t change campus anti-drug policies. As for the employers, they can still fire people for drug use. As for those students living in the rented apartments, they can consume marijuana at home, however, landlords also have the right to forbid that.


We highly discourage you from smoking weed in between college classes or while walking your dog, as it could lead to trouble. No cannabis smoking is allowed at bars or restaurants or any other public place.


Where to Buy Marijuana In Michigan?





Cannabis legalization creates a system of growing and selling marijuana with soon-to-be-opened pot shops. However, as the shops are not there yet, consumers will need to grow cannabis themselves or get it illegally. It is reported that Michigan is only beginning to license medical marijuana dispensaries.
