Beating odd weather, hundreds of marijuana buyers queued up outside Michigan pot shops to legally buy marijuana for recreational use. Many marijuana lovers even camped out the stores overnight to buy weed as soon as the stores opened on Sunday.

Michigan starting December 1 became the 10th state in the United States to sell marijuana for recreational use. John Sinclair, a marijuana activist, who shot to fame after he was sentenced to 10 years prison term for giving marijuana joints to a police officer, was the first to buy recreational marijuana at Arbors Wellness.

Sinclair's arrest back in 1969 sparked after Beatles star John Lennon performed and sang a song about Sinclair.

Kelly Savage of Columbus, Ohio, was the first to purchase recreational marijuana at Exclusive Brands LLC's provisioning center in Ann Arbor. It was an ounce of Platinum OG flower for $480. It is reported that Kelly camped out and waited for over 10 hours.

Here are a few things to keep in mind

  • Only 2.5 ounces of marijuana can be purchased by consumers at a time.
  • It still illegal to smoke weed in public, on school property or on federal lands.
  • It also illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana or take it across state lines.
  • Employers still can fire or refuse to hire people who fail a drug test.
