The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is looking for volunteers to help with developing these rules and regulations that will govern the recreational market. Commercial sales of marijuana are expected to start early next year, and recreational use will be available for those who are at least 21. Back in November, voters approved the ballot proposal to legalizes the use, possession and licensed sales of recreational marijuana.  People will also be able to grow up to 12 plants each.

The medical marijuana businesses that have state licenses will have first dibs on the recreational licenses.
