Growing Marijuana In Michigan

Growing your own weed in Michigan won’t send you to jail, especially after the results of the November 2018 election. The only real challenge is finding high-quality marijuana seeds. You may find some clones in a dispensary, but your choices will be slim.  Instead of searching for a place that will sell you seeds, choose exactly what you want by buying marijuana seeds online.

Michigan Marijuana Laws

Michigan laws

Michigan voters elected to legalize recreational marijuana November 2018. Prior to that, the state had very strict marijuana laws for non-medical users. Possessing or using any amount of marijuana meant jail time and growing small amounts of marijuana was a felony with up to four years in jail.  Now, adults are limited to 10-ounces and retail sales are taxed at 10%. Edibles are included. Retail dispensaries should be opened by December 2019. Many other violations have been changed to civil infractions.
