This week Michigan is set to become the first state in the Midwest to allow recreational marijuana on Thursday.
It was in early November during the midterm elections that the state’s voters voted to endorse recreational use of the drug for adults who are aged 21 and older.
“It’s certainly going to smell like freedom,” said Detroit lawyer Matt Abel.
As part of the new law, Michigan residents who are 21 or older can possess or transport up to 2.5 ounces (70.8 grams) of marijuana. They can also grow up to 12 plants, although not in public view. They also can give 2.5 ounces (70.8 grams) to another person, but not for payment.
