Welcome @Althegardener2 ! I can only imagine how things were back then, I heard good and bad stories about cannabis from back in the day. That era definitely had better music though! Glad everyone in Michigan can now enjoy it recreationallyHey there, from somewhere in Lapeer County!
I agree with what was said above about the historical quality and quantity of weed in this area, but my memory goes back to the 70s, where everything was really reeeeeeeeeeeeelly expensive shake or something beyond anyone's price range. Once, only one time did I taste something 'strong', it was called 'The Bomb' and I had one or two grams of it. Sat in a parking lot with my girlfriend in the dead of night and tried it. We both got the sensation of falling out of an airplane....lmao. Never forget it.
But everything up here was hoarded, no one wanted to sell, hardly wanted to share. Everytime any older folks talked about 'pushers' and so forth we laughed, no one pushed anything, they hoarded, period. Even now.
The only possible exception now are the old Vietnam war dudes with 'seeds they smuggled back' and are still growing, and it is pretty damned awful.
Met a big time dude from Mexico in 78 that was distributing once, too. Hung around all day, dangerously so I might add, but by the time I got the hell out of there I still didn't have any. I gave up. Time for a revolution I say, a chicken in every pot and some 'pot' in every household that wants it. (I find the term pot derogatory but it fits the saying, lol).
Welcome aboard @WilliamJBud !Greetings fellow Michigander’s. Bill here from the Ann Arbor area. Very new grower. Just switched my indoor grow to flower 12 days ago. Starting my first outdoor grow with these girls Friday in central Michigan. The pic is before I switched. You can see how the seedlings have grown. Stretching really nice. We post new pic soon. So good it’s legal. Good luck and good growing everyone
The question that was on the ballot and listed as Prop #1 was a very short version of the actual proposal. The full proposal is long, very long, and is supposed to be about 18 pages long if printed out. The state committee that is responsible for putting together the ballot that appears in the voting booth is required to create a short synopsis of the proposal that cannot be over a certain length by word count.Yea that's the big one I've been wondering about as well. We voted for per person. Not per household. Are my wife an I allowed 10.5oz or 21oz kind of a big difference and drastically changes there required production schedule. I was considering running into town for it later tonight it's only 30 minutes away, I'll just roll some blunts

That is what I have read written by a person who was in the group that got the proposal on the ballot and was one of the people that spearheaded getting it on the ballot. Deliberately worded it so that if you grow it yourself there is no limit to how much you can store. Buy it and there is a limit.Right. But according to this interview with a criminal defense attorney if you grow it yourself you can store as much as you want. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.metrotimes.com/detroit/a-weed-attorney-clears-the-air-about-michigans-confusing-cannabis-laws/Content?oid=21390433&media=AMP+HTML
