Edibles and Beverages Containing THC Now Legal in Minnesota
A new state law that went into effect on Friday now gives Minnesotans over age 21 the ability to buy edibles and beverages containing THC, the main, active ingredient in marijuana.
Stores can now sell edibles — such as gummies or hard candy — and beverages that contain up to 5 milligrams of THC per serving and 50 milligrams per package.
Five milligrams is about half the dose found in recreational marijuana products that are sold in other states where the drug has been legalized.
The new law prohibits restaurants, bars and other businesses that prepare food and beverages from making products containing THC, so you would likely find the products in smoke or vape shops that sell hemp and CBD products.

Meanwhile, Minnesota Republican Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (R) Winona issued this statement about the law going into effect.
“We passed bipartisan legislation that would restrict many THC products after the 2018 Federal Farm Bill opened up a new market for these products. Our bill regulates the industry and keeps these products away from kids. Adding clear labeling, limiting the sale to 21 years or older, and banning certain marketing practices aimed at children were absolutely necessary.
“If we find manufacturers and sellers are not following the law, we will see to it that they are held responsible.”
