MICHIGAN MARKS 1ST DAY OF LEGAL, RECREATIONAL POT

DETROIT - Michigan is officially the first state in the Midwest to
allow marijuana for more than medical purposes.

Today marks the first day for the legal recreational partaking of pot
in Michigan following voters' strong endorsement in the Nov. 6 election.

Staff at the Lansing City Pulse, a weekly alternative newspaper,
marked the day by handing out free joints across the street from the
Capitol.

Michigan is now among nearly a dozen states and the District of
Columbia with legalized recreational marijuana. Still, retail shops
are still months away and must involve state regulators.

Residents age 21 and older can possess or transport up to 2.5 ounces
(70.8 grams) of marijuana and grow up to 12 plants out of public view.
It can be consumed only at homes or other private property, though
landlords and employers can prohibit it.
