Be Heard on Cannabis

"Minnesota needs to have an honest conversation about how we will legalize cannabis. It will help veterans get care they need, allow law enforcement to focus resources on the crimes that put people in real danger, and advance an important component of criminal justice reform. I want to hear what Minnesotans think, which is why we're hosting a statewide Community Conversations on Cannabis tour to hear from people in every corner of our state."
- Majority Leader Ryan Winkler
