Minnesota Medical Cannabis Program

Patients must be enrolled in MN’s Medical Cannabis Program to purchase tax-free medical cannabis in the State of MN. Participants are protected from discrimination by the MN Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Research Act.

Cannabis Patient Centers (Dispensaries)

The Green Clinic does not stock, sell or dispense THC or CBD products. Certified, registered patients purchase medical marijuana from MN’s Medical Cannabis Dispensaries.

Legalization of Recreational Cannabis

MN residents, age 21 and older, can now legally possess, use and home grow cannabis for recreational purposes. The new “decriminalization” law took effect August 1, 2023, but recreational cannabis:

  • Will not be sold in retail locations (except for tribal nations) until the first quarter of 2025
  • Will be taxed at a rate of about 18% (local + state + 10%)
  • May not have the same legal protections as medical cannabis

See “For Adult Consumers” on the MN Office of Cannabis Management website for more information.
