Marijuana Is Now Mostly Legal In Minnesota

St. Paul, Minnesota — Marijuana is now legal in Minnesota. Here are a few things to know about the law as it comes into force.

Minnesotans are able to possess and even grow the plant for personal use, though growers can’t move it over state lines due to the federal ban.

Adults 21 and older can possess and travel within the state with two ounces of cannabis flower, eight grams of concentrate, and 800 milligrams of THC edible products. They can also have up to two pounds of flower at their homes.

A 10% tax came in force on July 1st and also applies to sales of other THC products.

Adults can grow up to eight cannabis plants at home with only four flowering at a time, and retailers can sell seeds as well if they follow regulations.

Selling is legal for registered and licensed sellers, but many local and regional towns have put a moratorium on these sales so they can figure the laws out with the legislators.

Smoking marijuana is still prohibited wherever regular smoking is prohibited. Note also that federal law bars cannabis consumers from owning firearms or ammunition as well.

The Office of Cannabis Management says they will oversee the industry in its infancy as well.

Authorities also remind you that it is illegal to drive under the influence.
