I am thinking of moving to Marquette. I understand Michigan may legalize recreational use of Marijuana. If it does, do you think the smell of marijuana will be common walking down the streets of Marquette? I only ask this because I am severely allergic and can have seizures if I am around even the smell.
Any info would help!

You would be better off moving to Oklahoma. You'll never have to worry about it being legal there.

I sympathize with you. Although I am not allergic, I find the smell offensive. I have neighbors (at least four houses) whose marijuana I can smell and doubt any of them have legitimate medical need for it. If a city banned marijuana smoke (and bonfires and barbeques), I would seriously consider moving there. It has become very unpleasant to spend time outdoors or open the windows. I live in Eastpointe, a suburb of Detroit.

I seriously doubt the streets will smell of marijuana. Pretty much the people who use it now will keep using it - only legally. People who do not use it are not likely to start.

You can encounter it anywhere. My daughter had a lot of problems with the smell in an apartment complex in Arizona, but when she moved to Denver where it is legal, no problem at her apartment.

However it is hard to escape exposure to it entirely. Not sure how you are going to do that. I guess you have to live with having seizures from time to time. That is terrible. Also I suggest you not drive. I have frequently smelled it coming from other cars near me in all kinds of different places. If you drive past someone smoking in their car, you could have a seizure and end up killing someone. Good luck to you this is a tough condition.

That's a tough one. I imagine that when legalized for recreational use, a lot of the increased usage will be in edibles. But I don't know what to tell you about the smoke. Right now, there are occasionally groups of smokers outside of bars smoking. I would bet that downtown would address it if rec smoking is legalized, but that is likely a process. We are a crunchy granola type town, so embracing legal weed will be a pretty big deal.

I have a workmate that lives in a large apartment complex, and she's been battling her landlord over another resident with a medical marijauna card. The resident smokes a LOT. The building is strictly smoke-free. Landlord won't address the resident because it is for a medical condition. My workmate has argued that the landlord doesn't know if the other resident could use edibles or not, and he should pursue it. Landlord still refuses.

I recently visited Colorado Springs and Breckenridge, CO. There were pot dispensaries in many areas. But I walked around in several public spaces and never smelled anything weird. Apparently, people are either smoking in their homes or ingesting via edibles.

It's was very odd to drive around seeing all the buildings with green crosses (the dispensary label) on them. It's probably how people felt at the end of alcohol Prohibition when bars started opening.
