Michigan Legalized Marijuana – Now What?
Alternate Vape’s home state of Michigan just passed Proposition 1, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for those who are 21 or older. With this passing, will this affect the legality of CBD? Let’s jump in.
Does This Directly Affect the Legality Of CBD?
No, marijuana is not the same as CBD.
CBD is derived from hemp, which is a cannabis plant just like marijuana, except it is non-intoxicating due to low levels of THC. Both industrial hemp and marijuana were made legal through Michigan’s Proposal 1.
This will open up new possibilities to the benefits of hemp, marijuana and their derivatives such as CBD as they will now be able to be thoroughly tested and studied. As more and more states regulate the use of cannabis products derived from both hemp and marijuana, it is only a matter of time until CBD will receive as much recognition as it deserves.
Still curious about what Proposition 1 means for Michigan and marijuana?
Is Marijuana Legal In Michigan As Of November 7th?
No, it is not. Any changes will be implemented after the Secretary of State certifies the results. Remember this only legalizes marijuana for individuals 21 and over. The proposition will become law ten days after the voting results have been certified, which must take place before November 26th, according to Secretary of State spokesperson Fred Woodhams.
How Much Can I Have?
When Proposition 1 is put into action, adults 21 and over can have at least 2.5 ounces of marijuana on them. While at home, adults are allowed to have up to 10 ounces if it is in a secure location.
How About Growing At Home?
Under Proposition 1, Michigan residents do have the ability to grow up to 12 plants per household! To those who might scoff at only 12 plants, the current standard in states that have legalized marijuana is 4, which is a significant increase.
Will Alternate Vape Start Producing THC-Based Products?
At this time, there are no plans for us to produce and sell THC products, as our primary focus is hemp and its derivatives such as CBD. With Proposition 1 passing, we will be discussing the impact of adding THC products to our line. Helping people is one of our main core values and will be top of mind as we discuss this issue.
