ST. PAUL, MN – The Minnesota House passed a cannabis bill that will legalize recreational marijuana and create a new state Office of Cannabis Management.
In addition to those two objectives above, the bill also will establish the licensing process for businesses, set cannabis taxes, and expunge low-level cannabis convictions, according to CBS News.
The next step for the bill is going to Senate where it will be voted on Friday. If passed, then the Governor Tim Walz will sign it and it will become law.
If it becomes law, then Minnesota citizens can legally possess up to 2 ounces of cannabis flower in a public place or 1.5 pounds in a person’s residence by this summer. However, it’ll take potentially up to a year before businesses in the state are set up to sell recreational marijuana.
