Our legalization party is Friday, but legal cannabis is for sale in Michigan right now.
Four shops in Ann Arbor started selling legal cannabis yesterday and the lines were quite long. According to the Free Press, people came from far and wide:
By 9:30 a.m., about 200 people were waiting in line by the historic yellow house where Greenstone Provisions sets up shop. Despite the cold and drizzle, people were in good spirits.
Al Gray, who made a 40-minute drive from Toledo to get to the Ann Arbor dispensary, said he had "nothing else to do."
"It helps me sleep at night," the 62-year-old said.
Gray suffers from insomnia and has been using marijuana off and on for 30 years. He planned to purchase an ounce of marijuana flower at Greenstone.
"Used to be hard to find until today," he said, laughing.
Before we go any further, it is a BAD IDEA to cross a state line with legal cannabis purchased in Michigan. Don't do it. Eventually the federal government will follow the will of the citizens, but that is a little further down the road.
