What NFL draft attendees need to know about Detroit’s cannabis scene – Detroit Free Press

As the NFL draft nears and visitors make their Detroit travel plans, there’s a relatively new offering in the city: cannabis.

Recreational sales of marijuana started in Detroit nearly a year and a half ago, and since then several dispensaries have opened around the city.

However, visitors to the draft — happening April 25-27 — won’t find recreational marijuana dispensaries in the city’s downtown, where the NFL draft is being held, but for those interested in exploring the scene and venturing to other Detroit neighborhoods, the Detroit Free Press put together some questions and answers about recreational marijuana in Detroit.

Is recreational marijuana legal in Detroit?

Yes. Michigan voters legalized the recreational use of marijuana in 2018 for anyone who is at least 21 years old. Recreational sales of marijuana began in Detroit in January 2023.

Where can I buy recreational marijuana?

There are now 31 recreational marijuana dispensaries open in Detroit. The city of Detroit has a map that shows where dispensaries are located that can be found at DetroitMI.gov by going to the Civil Rights, Inclusion & Opportunity Department’s page and clicking “Office of Marijuana Ventures & Entrepreneurship.”
