DHD#10 encourages use of lock boxes for safe cannabis storage

MANISTEE — Marijuana is the dried flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant and is commonly used for its psychoactive effects.

In Michigan recreational marijuana, is legal for those over the age of 21. A person may possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana in public and up to 10 ounces in their residence.

With various ways to consume marijuana, including inhalation through smoking or vaporization, and ingestion through edible forms like baked goods, candies and beverages, it is important to keep marijuana of any form locked up and out of the reach of children.

“Marijuana contains mind-altering compounds like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which can become very dangerous if accidentally ingested by children,” according to a news release.
