Edibles, beverages infused with cannabis ingredient THC become legal Friday in Minnesota
Industry advocates see law as an "oddity" allowing for recreational use while stopping just short of full marijuana legalization
July 1, 2022
Minnesotans who are 21 or older can start buying edibles and beverages that contain THC - the ingredient in cannabis that gets you high - under a new state law that takes effect Friday.
The new law permits the sale and purchase of edibles and beverages that contain up to 5 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per serving and 50 milligrams per package. A 5-milligram THC edible can cause a high feeling for first-time users, while people who are used to cannabis could require a larger dose to feel the effect.
Five milligrams is about half the standard dose found in recreational marijuana products in other states.
