Recreational Marijuana Information

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety would like to address the legalization of recreational marijuana with a few basic educational tips.

Recreational marijuana use is only legal for those individuals 21 years of age or older.

Possession of 2 ½ ounces per person (on their person) is the allowable amount for those age of 21 or older.

NOT allowed:

  • Operating or being in control of a motor vehicle under the influence of marijuana
  • Smoking marijuana within the passenger compartment of a vehicle by anyone within the vehicle
  • Consuming marijuana in public places, such as a business, restaurant or parking lot

While recreational marijuana has been legalized in Michigan, there remain many areas whose answer will come with future legislation and court decisions.

KDPS urges the responsible use and possession of recreational marijuana by those ages 21 or older. KDPS will continue to address illegal use and possession of recreational marijuana as directed by statute.
