The History of Minnesota Marijuana
In May of 2014, Minnesota passed a medical marijuana bill, known as the Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Use Act, allowing for the possession and use of medical marijuana for qualifying patients in the state. The bill allows for two manufacturing facilities and eight dispensaries statewide. Each of the two registered manufacturers will establish and operate four distribution facilities around the state, for a total of eight. In July of 2015, the first dispensary in the state opened its doors to patients.
Qualifying Medical Conditions: Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Cancer/cachexia, Glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Seizures, Severe and persistent muscle spasms, Terminal illness, Tourette’s Syndrome.
Update: Two bills were introduced to legalize recreational use of marijuana in Minnesota. House Bill 927 would legalize personal use and consumption of marijuana for individuals 21 years of age and older, regulate the production and dispensing of marijuana, provide marijuana establishments, and set a fee schedule and tax development. Senate Bill 1320 would do the same.
