Governor signs law allowing smoking as method of medical cannabis use in Minnesota

The Minnesota House and Senate both voted to expand the state’s medical marijuana program earlier this month, allowing users to smoke it in addition to other uses. Tuesday, Gov. Tim Walz made it official by signing the bill into law. 

The provision allowing smoking is part of the 520-page Health and Human Services conference committee report. 

According to the medical marijuana program, medical users can now take cannabis in liquid form, pill form, vaporized or by smoking. 

The new rule goes into effect March 1, 2022.
