Knowing Your State Laws About Legalized Cannabis

Do Your Own Research For Your State

I can only speak in this post about my particular US state; make sure to do you own thorough research for your own state and country.

In the US, marijuana is still illegal according to federal law. Despite all the states here legalizing cannabis for medical and recreational (known as Adult-Use) use. It is still illegal federally Always keep this in mind.

And trust me on this point...if someone tells you this is the way the law is... be smart! Check into it yourself. NEVER trust or believe another's word. Because chances are pretty close to 100%- if you get busted, this other person will not bail you out. They will keep all communications shut down with you. Do your homework and check the laws

In The State Of Michigan

  • It is illegal for a person with a Medical Marijuana Card (known as an MMMP card here), anyone who uses cannabis in Michigan to own, possess or purchase a handgun or ammunition
  • Unless you possess a caregiver's MMMP card with approved patients, you can only have 12 plants per house, no matter how many people residing there have an MMMP card. It's not a free-for-all of 12 plants per person, per household.
  • Drying cannabis (wet) is not covered under the medical marihuana law- Back in July of this year the state of Michigan Court of Appelas declared a ruling that wet (drying) marijuana is illegal
  • If you are NOT the home or land/property owner where you are growing and cultivating cannabis, you need the landowners permission to grow, possess or use cannabis
  • You as a person and individual CANNOT legally sell cannabis; BUT you can gift cannabis to another person.
  • Just like with alcohol, you can get a DUI ticket while operating a motor vehicle
  • You cannot smoke in public places... yet. municipalities participating and having local ordinances for cannabis will have designated areas for smoking and vaping
  • Indoor grows MUST be behind locked doors and not visible from the street (or through binoculars)

Federal Level

The federal statute prohibits certain classes of individuals from shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition. One of those classes includes people who are unlawful users of, or addicted to, any controlled substance and marijuana falls into that category.
According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF), “Any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana for medicinal purposes is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance and is prohibited by Federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition”.

Cannabis is superlegal in Colorado, for lack of better way of describing it:) I strongly support beyond organic permaculture and i kinda think we should throw an online garden challenge about it:) it would be so awesome if the infrastructure for 100% renewable Colorado cannabis grow electricity happened by employing a crypto fundraiser to get Denver off the polluting energy grid entirely .. maybe ask our solar company folks if its a thing that can happen? We do get 300 days a year of sunshine after all:) and im noticing a bunch of nerds around here haha maybe we can figure it out


That's what I've heard.
I'e also heard that the federal government more or less leave things up to local authorities, but I am just careful to be extra cautious. No reason to bring on unwanted attention.

In my country, marijuana is very strict, equivalent to kidnapping.


Oh wow
What kind of penalties does your government and police officials give?

In my country, it is a very serious offense and working also in a place that i might be beheaded, but i am here to learn the benefits to our health., maybe someday it will be legalized. Thank you.

I can for sure imagine too many regulations might just cause underground markets to keep thriving ... difficult balance

Well, at least you are going towards legalization. Not something I could say for my country and the rest of Europe....

It's frustrating to see our politicians still be so close-minded towards the herb.

Smoke a plant and you can't own a gun, fucking barbarians.


That is a side effect of it still being illegal at the federal level. Being a registered medical cannabis user in Michigan puts you on the federal list for denial of permission to purchase on the required background check when you go to buy a firearm.

I'm wondering when the new law in Michigan will take effect.
