Adult-use cannabis will be legalized starting August 1
Governor Tim Walz signed a bill legalizing adult-use cannabis and providing for the expungement or resentencing of cannabis convictions on Tuesday, May 30. Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan were joined by former Governor Jesse Ventura, legislators, and advocates to celebrate the bill signing.
“We’ve known for too long that prohibiting the use of cannabis hasn’t worked. By legalizing adult-use cannabis, we’re expanding our economy, creating jobs, and regulating the industry to keep Minnesotans safe,” said Governor Walz. “Legalizing adult-use cannabis and expunging or resentencing cannabis convictions will strengthen communities. This is the right move for Minnesota.”. . .
