Marijuana may be legal in Michigan, but that doesn’t mean you can smoke it anywhere you want. When viewers of FOX 47 News asked whether it was legal for a Taxi passenger to get high in the back of their hired car, the news station asked police, who responded by saying it is absolutely NOT allowed, even if you’re not the driver.

“If it’s a taxi service, if it’s limo service, it’s a passenger vehicle, that’s on the roadway in the state of Michigan,” explained Lt. Darren Green, Michigan State Police. “If the driver… is not cornered off by a window or a different compartment, there is not anybody inside that motor vehicle that is allowed to smoke marijuana.”

Police added that there can be consequences for the passenger and driver. Drivers can be arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
