Minnesota Medical Marijuana Company Sues State For The Right To Sell THC Edibles To All Adults, Not Just Patients

The legal complaint centers on a unique law that was enacted over the summer

A Minnesota medical marijuana company is suing the state in an attempt to secure the right to sell THC edibles to any adult over 21, just like other businesses are able to do under a recently enacted hemp law. The medical cannabis company argues that the current policy amounts to an unconstitutional double standard.

Vireo Health, which is one of two medical marijuana companies authorized to sell cannabis to registered patients in the state, filed the lawsuit against several Minnesota agencies in a state circuit court late last week.

The legal complaint centers on a unique law that was enacted over the summer that allows hemp businesses to legally market certain cannabis products—including foods and beverages infused with THC, CBD and other cannabinoids.

While those businesses are able to market the cannabinoid-infused edibles to adults 21 and older within a limited regulatory environment, Vireo said that it’s currently prohibited from doing so at dispensaries, where the company’s “operations and sales are heavily regulated and must comply with stringent testing, reporting, security, and eligibility requirements.”
