Wait!! The sky didn't fall and everything is normal as can be, just as it was before prohibition. Never mind. Maybe just send a pepperoni pizza instead. yum smiley

Rick-o doesn’t live in the rural part of the state for the crisp morning air. Just sayin’.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

How long do you think it takes to get from plant to harvest? Michigan is a heavily agricultural state!

Also, greenhouses are a thing that exists.

UP would probably have to grow a lower yielding faster finishing variety of the herb if grown outdoors.
The southern half of the state would actually do as well as western/northern mass. ag-wise.

Out of curiosity, what does an average 1/4 oz go for in the stores? Is that more or less than the street price?

I've never seen that addressed in any reading.

Did they build any privacy protections into the MI law?

Only Oregon and Alaska have done that in any meaningful way. Both states forbid pot shops from collecting and storing customer data.

California has very bad law, but it will get a little bit better come the new year when pot shops will not be allowed to sell customer data to private third parties. However, customer records will still end up in a database where it could be subpoenaed by the feds...

ER visits are up due to cannabis. Its not usually life threatening, but that will come as they concentrate the chemical.

As will visits due to collisions, while newbs get the hang of DWL.

A word to the wise for anyone who is considering using "medical" marijuana, it's still illegal under federal law. So, if your job or hobby has any federal requirements, the use of marijuana is still considered illegal and you be violating federal law. Many people don't understand this.

Here's another thing people don't realize - most federal jobs and hobbies (?) don't do drug testing, or have morality clauses. We don't live in a total police state yet (yes, max, I know), so unless you are sending photos of yourself buying, consuming, and celebrating cannabis to federal officials or your position requires regular drug testing or a security clearance, chill out.

Many municipal government jobs do require drug testing, although I've never heard of anyone losing the hire because of a positive. And some test only before hiring, so go to town afterward.

It's still a problem legally for users since there's not yet a standard for what level constitutes impairment.

Get in an accident, here a judge will rubber-stamp a police request for a blood draw, any level of metabolites in your system can get you charged with DWI.

It seems implausible that the criminal statute in your jurisdiction defines the presence of metabolites in your system alone as definitive proof of driving while intoxicated.

Sounds like you have some crappy judges in your jurisdiction. Are they elected?

After you're charged with DWI, if you weren't under the influence, does the prosecutor drop the charges, or do your police and D.A. collaborate to convict innocent people?

But some do, hence the "if" in macphanatic's concern.
I wasn't a federal employee but I have a federally regulated license and for access to homeland security controlled State properties I had to be certified and could be picked randomly to be drug tested at any time.

Yes, it definitely isn't a problem in these parts. It really depends on the variety. A friend and I had one many years ago that finished at the end of June! It was a 4' tall softball bat and it was very good. Too bad we weren't savvy enough to get a cutting of that one.

Usually, most varieties are finished by the first frost. That said, an early frost can be quite bothersome.

Not sure. I don't have a medical card and that's the only way to buy currently in MI.

They say we won't see recreational shops for another year. Not a problem for me. I've been cultivating my own for over 30 years. I KNOW what's in mine. I can't say that with other peoples product.

Yes, that's true. However, I'm sure the Feds have more important things to do than harass people using cannabis. In fact, my nephew is an FBI guy and the way he talks, national security is pretty much the focus in his department.

I could care less whether someone choses to use marijuana. It was just a heads up that just because a state legalizes its use, there is the potential for federal issues.

One such issue is certain transportation jobs or jobs requiring security clearances. If you use marijuana, you can't legally buy a firearm. There's a box on the background check related to illegal drug use. If you check no, you've lied on a federal form. If you check yes, your purchase is denied.
