Marijuana use has increased in Minnesota. So have poison control calls.

As many as one in five adults in Minnesota used marijuana before its legalization last year, according to a new state report.

But as marijuana use increased between 2018 and 2022, so did cannabis-related calls to the state's poison control center.

The state-commissioned report published earlier this month paints the clearest picture yet of the prevalence of cannabis use in Minnesota and its broader impacts before it was legalized in 2023. State regulators will use the data as a baseline to measure the impact of legalization in the coming years.
