MN Gov. Tim Walz Signs Recreational Cannabis Bill Into Law

Gov. Tim Walz signed the bill into law Tuesday

Minnesota has officially become the 23rd state to legalize recreational cannabis use — but don’t light up just yet.

Gov. Tim Walz signed the bill into law Tuesday. The 300-page bill allows adults 21 and older to use recreational marijuana and transforms a black market into regulated, state-licensed businesses throughout the state. It also expunges low-level cannabis convictions.

“We’ve known for too long that prohibiting the use of cannabis hasn’t worked. By legalizing adult-use cannabis, we’re expanding our economy, creating jobs, and regulating the industry to keep Minnesotans safe,” Walz said. “Legalizing adult-use cannabis and expunging or resentencing cannabis convictions will strengthen communities. This is the right move for Minnesota.”
