Michigan, Illinois set to usher in recreational pot sales

Marijuana sits on display at Arbors Wellness in the medical marijuana shop in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Nov. 25. Adults age 21 and over will be able to buy marijuana for recreational use starting Sunday, Dec. 1 in Michigan.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — James Daly is eager to make marijuana history on Sunday, when he plans to open the doors to Arbors Wellness, beckon the lengthy line outside and legally start selling recreational pot for the first time in the Midwest.

“We’ve worked very hard to be prepared,” said Daly, who owns the medical dispensary that, for now, is among just six shops in Michigan – mostly in Ann Arbor – also approved to start selling for adult use in December. The business is doubling staff and has fielded calls from potential customers across the state along with neighboring Ohio and Indiana.
