Michigan is for cannabis lovers! That is not our state motto, but if you ask me it should be! Did you know that in this state you can grow twelve marijuana plants on your property and still be in compliance with the law? We don’t want drug dealers on every corner, so we legalized growing it yourself.
This cuts out the middleman, so to speak, and undermines the illegal pot trade by letting people get themselves high! Furthermore, you can possess up to ten ounces of pot at home, and over two ounces in public, and not go to jail for it. Moving to Ann Arbor was a shock to my system, because previously I had lived in one of the “zero tolerance” states where having a half a joint would get you jail time. Now I can relax a little bit, because Ann Arbor is friendly when it comes to cannabis – if everyone obeys the law, everyone has a good time. To that end, one of the cannabis dispensaries even offers free delivery for orders over $100, to encourage people to not smoke pot and drive through the streets of Ann Arbor. Although I don’t like shelling out that much dough at once for marijuana, I have done it more than once just so I don’t risk getting pulled over by the Ann Arbor Police Department while I am stoned. As cool as the cops tend to be around here, you don’t want to get caught driving under the influence by the Ann Arbor PD or you will not end up having a good night!
