Lawmakers in the state of Minnesota have OK’d medical cannabis smokable flower this month for medical cannabis patients

The House had also passed adult-use marijuana during the legislative session that ended on Monday, but it was later denied in the Senate.

The change will be effective no later than March 2022 and will provide a more affordable option to medicinal marijuana patients.

Flower sales aren’t likely to be fully incorporated into the state’s medical marijuana program until sometime in 2022.

The provision could be effective earlier if determined by the state Commissioner of Health after rules are adopted and independent testing procedures and equipment are in place.

The smokable-flower provision was part of an omnibus health bill, HF 2128.
Gov. Tim Walz is expected to sign the bill into law.

MJBizFactbook has predicted that 2021 Minnesota MMJ sales will reach $60 million-$70 million.

The program currently has 34,163 registered patients, according to the state.
