The Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act (MRTMA) is the law guiding recreational cannabis in Novi. To consume or possess recreational cannabis, an individual must be at least 21 years old. Adults are allowed to store up to 10 ounces of cannabis flowers at home, but only 2.5 ounces in public, and no more than 15 grams of the 2.5-ounce limit may be in concentrated form.
Additionally, Novi adults of legal age may grow up to 12 marijuana plants at home. However, it is illegal for an adult to cultivate marijuana plants if the cultivated plants are visible from a public location or if the plants are grown outside of a secure area. A violation of this law is considered a civil crime that may result in a fine of up to $100 as well as the forfeiture of the plants. Note that landlords and employers may restrict cannabis use on their properties and at workplaces.
Pursuant to the MRTA, the following are prohibited in the City of Novi:
Driving under the influence of marijuana
Public consumption of cannabis
Transporting cannabis from Novi to other locations across state lines or from other states into the City of Novi
