I live in Muskegon, MI, & waited a long time for legalization of recreational cannabisâ€¦ In 2018, our house state became the first in the midwest to allow both adult-use & medical marijuana use.
It took a while for the dispensaries to get their licenses in order, meet the difficult requirements & open their doors, then now, anyone over the age of 21 can shop for cannabis.
It’s necessary to show valid government-issued identification. I can purchase up to 2.5 ounces of smokable flower in a single transactionâ€¦ There is no per-day cannabis purchase limit for recreational weed, and for every purchase there is the added fees of 10% excise tax & 6% sales tax. This adds considerably to the cost, but buying weed isn’t cheap. Because marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, most banks & credit card companies are unwilling to partner with dispensaries for electronic money transfers. The dispensary has somewhat solved this problem by having ATMs on-site. It is illegal at the state level to consume cannabis in a public area! Consumption needs to take locale in private. I am simply happy to have access to safe cannabis products. The dispensary in Muskegon is a entirely great & up-to-date facility. It’s bright, scrub & welcoming. I know comfortable browsing & consulting with the budtenders. I have a wide range of choices for consumption methods, producers, strains & potency. There are dozens of options of smokable flower & singles & packs of infused & non-infused pre-rolls. The menu of edibles includes all sorts of flavors of gummies, cookies, brownies, candies & chocolates. They even sell cannabis-infused vapes. I could never manage to try everything because the inventory is consistently updating.
