Changes In The Law On Cannabis Consumption
The law on possessing and consuming cannabis and cannabis products is in a state of flux. Nationally, 29 states and the District of Columbia allow medical marijuana for therapeutic purposes. Marijuana for recreational purposes is legal in nine states and the District of Columbia.
Many local governments have also taken action to decriminalize low-level pot possession. The number of Michigan cities that have done this continues to grow. It has now reached 14 — including Detroit.
But marijuana is still a controlled substance under federal law, as it has been for decades. This makes for a tricky landscape to navigate, with federal, state and local laws all potentially in play.
