The Minnesota government is currently in the process of approving complete marijuana legalization, but for now, one may opt to get a medical marijuana card to alleviate their needs. Though medical marijuana is legal in Minnesota, like in other states it may be a bit tedious to receive your card. In order to qualify, here are some of the qualifying conditions:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Severe and persistent muscle spasms
  • Cancer/cachexia
  • Glaucoma
  • etc.

Currently one may possess an amount of a 30-day supply of non-inhaled or herbal cannabis products. If you are unable to go to a dispensary, similar to states like Virginia, you can have a registered caregiver pick up medical marijuana for you.
