Handful of Minnesota cities pause cannabis edible sales as they develop local rules

ST.PAUL — As cities across Minnesota figure out how they’ll regulate food and drinks containing the component of cannabis that causes a high, some cities have opted to block sales altogether.

In the past month, the cities of Marshall, Robbinsdale and St. Joseph approved moratoriums on sales. Other cities across Minnesota are also considering moratoriums as they weigh how they'll tackle enforcement, including Waite Park near St. Cloud, and the Twin Cities suburb of Prior Lake. Stillwater enacted a one-year moratorium on all cannabis product sales in November 2021, including the nonpsychoactive hemp product CBD.

Food and beverages containing THC, the psychoactive part of cannabis, became legal in Minnesota on July 1 . The new law allows products to contain 5 milligrams of THC per serving so long as it is derived from hemp, not marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law. Packages can contain a total of 50 milligrams of THC. Sales are restricted to those 21 and older.
