SE City Council to hear Edible Cannabis Law Update

SLEEPY EYE — The Sleepy Eye City Council will hear an update Tuesday on the newly adopted edible cannabis law.

 
Sleepy Eye City Manager Bob Elston said the update is informational only. “The only thing I intend to do is look at it. Maybe by September, we can discuss some of it,” said Elston. “The law is really long and extensive. I emailed the League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) information on it to the City Council. The city can’t completely ban the sale of (cannabis) edibles. Several cities have put a moratorium on it. I’m not saying we have to do that. I’m saying just take a look at the law and see how we deal with it.”

The new law effective July 1, enacted at the end of the 2022 legislative session, allows certain edible and beverage products infused with THC to be sold.

Under current law, the products can be manufactured in Minnesota but also imported from other sates. Growing hemp in Minnesota is governed by the state Department of Agriculture, although the MDA Hemp Program does not regulate cannabis extracts, development and manufacturing of cannabis extracts, or the retail and marketing of cannabinoid products.

Cities could consider zoning implications for manufacturing and production of cannabinoid products, according to the LMC.

The new law limits the sale of CBD and THC products to persons over age 21. The council meeting starts at 8 p.m. in the council chambers. It is broadcast on the local cable access channel.
