Please note: ILGM is NOT a legal adviser. Information contained in this website is intended as general introductory information only. The information contained on this website is not legal advice. It should not be construed as legal advice and should not be relied upon as such.

Marijuana is not legal in Minnesota, but the laws there make it very hard to get in trouble. Minnesota approved a medical marijuana program in 2014 and decriminalized possession before that.

You have to do a lot to go to jail; that is reserved for those who have a lot (more than 1.5 ounces) of weed.  If you are a personal user of marijuana, you might have to pay a fine if caught, but you will not go to jail.

    No Laws On Growing

    Growing Marijuana In Minnesota

    When it comes to growing marijuana, Minnesota has no specific laws, but if caught, any charges are based on the weight of the plant.  That means, if your plants are 42 grams or less you will only have up to a $200 fine, even less if it’s your first time.  In term of medical users, the state is more clear.

    Medical marijuana users are prohibited from growing their own plants. If they do grow weed in Minnesota, it will be the same legally as not being a part of the medical program.

    Minnesota Smoking Laws

    Minnesota’s medical marijuana program is still in development, but they have already set some rules. One surprising rule is that they will not be allowing any smokeable forms of marijuana.

    Pay Your Weed Tax

    It may be hard to get in trouble for using marijuana in Minnesota, but you need to remember to pay your weed tax! Minnesota participates in a tax stamp program that requires those purchasing marijuana to also purchase stamps to cover taxes. The tax rate in Minnesota is $3.50 per gram.

    If you are caught with marijuana and do not have stamps with your weed, you will face a penalty of twice the original cost. There is also the chance of jail time and additional fines. Medical marijuana patients will not be required to buy stamps, but they will also not be allowed to have plants or smokeable weed.
