US (MN): Cannabis regulators take first step towards setting rules for legal market

Regulators in Minnesota are seeking public input as they begin the process of crafting rules for the state’s new cannabis industry, hoping to hear from “the widest possible range of community members, advocates, and partners who want to help shape how the rules are drafted.”

To collect those views, the state’s Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) on Monday released a new online survey that includes questions on cannabis cultivation, processing, and manufacturing. “The first topic areas reflect the necessary industry components to help ensure the state can meet supply and demand once the market opens,” the agency said.

The initial survey will be available for responses through November 30, with OCM saying that it “wants to hear from a wide range of people throughout this rulemaking process.” After opening the feedback form and providing basic information, commenters can leave comments on cultivation, processing, or manufacturing issues by selecting that choice on a dropdown menu. After answering questions on one topic, users can either submit their responses or choose another of the three topics to weigh in on.

Under each topic, respondents are prompted to detail what they see as opportunities, concerns, and technical or practical set-up considerations that regulators should be mindful of as they launch the process of drafting rules.
