Michigan residents would have access to generous amounts of recreational marijuana compared to most other states where it has been legalized, should voters pass a ballot initiative Nov. 6.
“Michigan would be on par with Maine,” said Mason Tvert, spokesman for the national Marijuana Policy Project.
What’s proposed in Michigan: people 21 and over could carry up to 2.5 ounces on them, with a total of 10 ounces at home — as well as 12 plants.
Maine has broad laws in place, allowing individuals to have 2.5 ounces of marijuana flowers on their person, as well as three mature plants, 12 immature plants and an unlimited number of seedlings at home.
Most states in the U.S. have possession laws that allow for one ounce of marijuana.
The Michigan ballot proposal is seeking a limit of 2.5 ounces so that it aligns with the personal possession laws already in place
