Mon 5-22-2023

(St. Paul, MN)- A bill to legalize recreational marijuana in Minnesota is awaiting Governor Walz's signature. On Saturday, the state Senate gave its final stamp of approval on legislation that would allow adults over 21 to carry up to two ounces of weed in public and possess two pounds at home. The measure allows Minnesotans 21 and older to buy up to two ounces of cannabis flower, eight grams of concentrate, and 800 milligrams worth of edible products at a time. The legislation will also automatically expunge low-level cannabis convictions.
