Minnesota has a medical marijuana program, but adult use of cannabis is otherwise prohibited for those without a valid certificate. Minnesota has decriminalized cannabis.
Recreational cannabis use is currently illegal in Minnesota. However, it is certainly one state where this may change soon. Adult-use marijuana may become legal in Minnesota in the future.
The Minnesota law lists the following medical conditions as qualifiers for a medical cannabis card:
*To qualify for the program, you must suffer from cancer or a terminal illness with a probable life expectancy of under one year if your illness or its treatment produces one or more of the following: severe or chronic pain; nausea or severe vomiting; or Cachexia or severe wasting.

Minnesota does not recognize other states’ medical marijuana programs and MMJ cards and does not have reciprocity.
A Minnesota medical marijuana card is honored by some other states in the US with a medical marijuana program. This is called “reciprocity.”
The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:
However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is fine) — just that the state’s medical marijuana laws protect you to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and you intend to purchase medical marijuana.
The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also beholden to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.
The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing a visiting patient application to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:
Minnesota’s Medical Cannabis law prohibits discrimination based on:
The “analytes” that the labs must test for in each batch include pesticide residues and plant growth regulators, heavy metals, mycotoxins, microbiological contaminants, and residual solvents. Testing is self-policed in Minnesota.
In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy or another legally designated space to purchase cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can actually do so.
All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks, or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals, or other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members’ clubs and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.
The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense, generally keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
