Smoking or vaping cannabis and hemp products not allowed on airport property starting Jan. 1
Smoking or vaping cannabis and hemp products is banned at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport starting Jan. 1.
The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) approved an ordinance Monday that makes it a petty misdemeanor to smoke or vaporize cannabis and hemp on airport property, even in areas designated for tobacco use.
The change comes after the Legislature voted this spring to make Minnesota the 23rd state to legalize recreational marijuana. The law took effect Aug. 1, but legal weed won't be available for purchase until 2025.
