US (MN): Lawmakers unveil plan to legalize adult-use

Minnesota DFL lawmakers have unveiled their latest effort to legalize recreational adult-use cannabis in the state.

"Over the last three years, DFLers in the legislature have listened and worked to build a Minnesota-specific model for cannabis legalization," bill co-author Rep. Zack Stephenson said at a press conference Thursday. "Our bill will create a safe, well-regulated, legal marketplace where Minnesotans can grow, sell and buy cannabis if they choose to do so."
The current language of the proposal (HF 100) would make it legal for anyone over 21 to possess or transport up to two ounces of cannabis flower in public, possess up to five pounds of cannabis flower at home, or eight grams or less of cannabis concentrate, as well as possess or transport cannabinoid products containing up to 800 milligrams of THC. Cannabis-based products would face numerous restrictions to reduce the potential appeal to children.

Under the proposal, cannabis use would be legal in private homes and licensed public establishments. The plan would establish a licensing program for cultivators, transporters, retailers, wholesalers, and other roles. Minnesotans would be allowed to cultivate cannabis plants at home but could only sell cannabis and cannabinoid products with a license.
