DETROIT – State of Michigan regulators said the sale of recreational marijuana could start as early as Dec. 1, 2019.

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced this week that anyone older than 21 could legally buy marijuana products on that date. It’s a month earlier than previously expected.

However, only medical marijuana businesses with recreational licenses would be able to start selling in December. Moreover, marijuana sales wouldn’t be legal everywhere with many communities opting out. View that list here.

That includes the city of Detroit, where the City Council voted this month to wait until early 2020 to allow the sale of recreational marijuana.
