(WXYZ) — Brand new recreational marijuana sales underway in Michigan marked a historic boom for the emerging industry – and had hundreds of people lined up for the first day of legal marijuana sales.
Shops in Ann Arbor were among the first in the state allowed to sell pot.
Business owners say the sale of recreational marijuana is something they’ve been working towards for years, and customers hope today is just the beginning.
Sunday’s move comes after Michigan voters spoke more than a year ago, choosing to make our state the 10th in the country to sell recreationally .
Customers in Ann Arbor are sharing their enthusiasm for this day and buying affordable product tested by the state.
In the meantime, more shops already approved to sell recreationally are waiting for their local communities to give the green light.
Until then, those few who are able to sell now will be cashing in. »
