Don’t forget that tomorrow evening is the Saint Peter Community Conversation on Cannabis. This is an incredibly important conversation for us to have, and I’m thankful we’ll be joined by Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, Assistant Senate Minority Leader Jeff Hayden, Sen. Nick Frentz, and Rep. Jack Considine at Gustavus Adolphus College.
Eleven states and Washington D.C. have legalized cannabis for adult use, and when we return for the 2020 Legislative Session, the process for crafting Minnesota’s brand of cannabis legislation begins. Several of these community conversations have already taken place throughout the state, but I wanted to make sure our community was included as well. I hope to see you tomorrow evening with all of your questions, comments, and concerns, as we work to find the best way to write laws for adult-use cannabis that are safe, responsible, and beneficial for Minnesota.
