Minnesota cannabis agency wants streamlined laws for faster dispensary openings

Minnesota lawmakers should tweak marijuana laws this session to help growers and dispensaries start their businesses faster, the state's Office of Cannabis Management recommended in its initial report to the Legislature this week.

Among several specific changes the agency wants is a temporary license system, particularly for social equity applicants, meaning those harmed directly or indirectly by past criminal enforcement of marijuana laws.

"This strategy would accelerate the timeline, help ensure adequate supply ... and offer first-mover advantage for social equity applicants in support of the 2025 market launch goal," the report stated.
