Over the weekend Michigan became the first state in the Midwest to allow recreational marijuana sales.
The state, where voters backed marijuana legalization in 2018, allowed stores to start selling weed to recreational users on Sunday.
Michigan officials issued 18 licenses, including to growers and processors, for the first day of sales, and let stores shift some of their medical marijuana supply to recreational — at least until more recreational businesses are up and running in January.
In Michigan, anyone 21 or older can purchase and possess marijuana. The state is licensing retailers and others along the supply line — although, as in other states, local jurisdictions can opt out of sales.
