Medical Marijuana in Michigan

Pot Laws in Michigan

Marijuana is not decriminalized in Michigan. Its laws, however, are straightforward, but still subject to interpretation by either arresting officers or court personnel for sentencing. Possession of any amount of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor and subject to 90 days in jail and $100 fine. The interpretive function with this law is the amount of marijuana involved in the arrest. If there is a large quantity, the arresting officer(s) may determine that it is intended for sale. There is no stipulation in the regulation that determines what amount may be charged in this fashion.

Any person arrested for any amount of pot in their possession in a park can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the court’s interpretation of circumstances surrounding the arrest; and can be sentenced to 2 years in prison and a $2000 fine. All those convicted with marijuana charges receive an automatic suspension of driving privileges for six months.

There is a limit of 12 plants (size and maturity not stipulated in this law), and 2.5 ounces of marijuana dried for use. All plants must be inside an enclosed, locked facility.
