Michigan Marijuana Employer Guidelines“Recreational vs. personal” use of marijuana: We recognize that a majority of the country uses the term “recreational use” when referring to states that have legalized possession and use of limited amounts of marijuana for those over 21.
Michigan personal and medical use of marijuana.
Medical Use: Proposition 1 was approved by 63% of voters in the November 4, 2008 election. Effective Date: December 4, 2008. The medical use of marijuana is allowed under state law to the extent that it is carried out in accordance with the provisions of this act. The law only briefly mentions the workplace and only says that employers are not required to accommodate medical marijuana use in the workplace. It also states that insurance providers need not reimburse the cost of medical marijuana.
Personal Use: Voters approved the proposition for personal, "recreational" use by 55%. This means adults over 21 in the state will be able to legally possess and grow marijuana. The proposal permits only up to 12 plants can be grown in their residence and store up to 10 ounces of marijuana.
