Marijuana in Michigan

Medical marijuana was legalized in Michigan in 2008. The state is currently issuing state licenses under newly reformed laws. Local governments may enact anti-medical marijuana ordinances and require marijuana businesses to go through a permitting process. License applicants cannot not obtain a state license without also obtaining local permits.

A recreational ballot measure was recently passed by voters in 2018.


Children under the age of 18 can use medical marijuana in Michigan if they have one doctor’s certification and a parent or guardian acting in the role of caretaker.
