Recreational marijuana is coming to Mount Pleasant after Lume Cannabis Co. and House of Fire Provisioning were issued conditional authorization Aug. 21.
The process to bring recreational marijuana to the city didn’t happen overnight. It started in November 2018 when Michigan voters approved recreational use of marijuana.
The bills passed by legislators allow individuals over 21 to purchase and possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and keep 10 ounces at home, according to the Marijuana Regulatory Agency. Public cannabis consumption is strictly illegal in Michigan. Property owners and businesses may impose their own rules regarding consumption.
