Edible Cannabinoid Products
A new State law was enacted at the end of the 2022 legislative session allowing certain edible and beverage products infused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to be sold. In July 2022, the St. Joseph City Council adopted a temporary moratorium on the sales of these products for a period of 1 year. At their August 7th meeting, the City Council voted to adopt an ordinance that would repeal the moratorium in its entirety, making the sale of Edible Cannabinoid Products legal in the City of St. Joseph.
State law transferred legal authority of Edible Cannabinoid Products to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

Once registration is complete, the owner will receive a registration certificate via e-mail. The certificate contains a unique ID number and will be proof of registration. Make sure to keep a copy for your records. Further questions on the registration process can be directed to MDH by emailing email@example.com.
