Recreational pot delivery approved in Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Recreational marijuana will be able to be delivered to homes in Michigan soon.

The first three recreational marijuana businesses have been approved for adult-use home delivery in Michigan: Lit Provisionary in Evart, Battle Creek Provisioning in Battle Creek and Nature’s Releaf Burton in Burton.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says the businesses were approved this week.

The process is similar to medical marijuana delivery. Customers will sign up online and place an order. They will have to provide an ID to verify they are 21 years old or older. Most payments will be made online, but delivery services are allowed to accept cash.

The state has set 2.5 ounces as the legal limit to purchase at a time. The limit for marijuana concentrate is 15 grams.

Delivery drivers also have rules. They must be 21 or older, they can’t carry more than 15 ounces of marijuana at a time and the product must be secure if it is left in the vehicle. Plus, each vehicle must have GPS to identify its location at all times.

The prices have yet to be released.

News 8 reached out to dispensaries Thursday who say the details are still being worked out, including the release date for the delivery service.

As of Thursday afternoon, LARA says there are 45 businesses with Michigan adult-use licenses.
