Michigan Senate bill would ban growing pot at home, lower sales tax

The bill redirects tax revenue that was intended to go to schools and roads to local government, kicking 25 percent to municipalities, 30 percent to counties and 5 percent to county sheriff's offices.

Meekhof, who was term-limited this year and leaves office at the end of the month, is proposing to lower the tax rate on recreational pot from 10 percent to 3 percent. The current 3 percent tax on medical marijuana will be eliminated under the current law.

The lame duck Gov is being very coy whether he will sign this, and several other measures working their way through the legislature.

Legalization went into effect Dec 6, but this bill would make it illegal to grow your own, several counties and cities have already banned pot, as the voter approved law allows, and the state expects to slow walk production and sale licenses until 2021.
