Here's another datapoint for those who think "legal" means legal.

Marijuana may be legal in Michigan, but it can still get you fired from you job

"This act does not prohibit an employer from disciplining an employee for violation of a workplace drug policy or for working while under the influence of marihuana. This act does not prevent an employer from refusing to hire, discharging, disciplining, or otherwise taking an adverse employment action against a person with respect to hire, tenure, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of that person's violation of a workplace drug policy "

So, you can't use on the weekend, if you work for a retrograde sort that still wants it banned. You can't grow your own. You can't get a license to grow or sell. You can't use if you live in a city that bans it. Wow! What a difference legalization has made!
