Social equity applicants could get 'head start' in Minnesota's marijuana market

Minnesota regulators are pushing a bill that would give aspiring cannabis business owners who meet social equity criteria a head start in the state's recreational marijuana market.

Leaders of the state's Office of Cannabis Management at a news conference Thursday called for several changes to Minnesota's marijuana law, including one that would grant temporary business licenses as early as July to social equity applicants ahead of the anticipated 2025 market launch.

Social equity applicants include people harmed directly or indirectly by previous criminal enforcement of marijuana laws.
