After more than a year of negotiations, mostly behind closed doors, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and legislative leaders said Tuesday March 12, 2019, they’ve agreed on legislation to legalize recreational marijuana for adults. […]

A state commission says Michigan should not set a legal limit for how much of marijuana’s active ingredient motorists can have in their system.
  
The Impaired Driving Safety Commission recently forwarded its findings to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Legislature after spending nearly two years studying how marijuana affects drivers.


The commission’s report says levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in a person’s blood are not a “reliable indicator” of whether they’re impaired.

Michigan approved medical marijuana use in 2008, and recreational marijuana use last year.
