Minnesota latest state to legalize THC

Do you have employees in Vikings State? If so, keep reading! On July 1, 2022, the state of Minnesota adopted a new law legalizing the sale, purchase, and consumption of edible cannabis products for people age 21 and older. The law authorized the use of edible cannabis products made from materials extracted from certified cannabis plants. The product can contain no more than 0.3% of any hemp-derived THC and no more than five milligrams of THC per serving (or more than 50 milligrams of THC per package). Products that comply with the standards of this law have been removed from the country’s Schedules of Controlled Substances.

What does change mean for Minnesota employers? This change in Minnesota’s recreational marijuana laws means that Minnesota employers may be required to update their workplace policies, procedures, and handbooks because edible cannabis products are now considered a “legal consumable product.”

Minnesota law prohibits employers from disciplining employees and job applicants for using a “lawful consumer product.” More specifically, an employer may not discipline, fire, or refuse to hire an individual because that person engages in or has engaged in the use of “legitimate consumer products” if the use occurs for reasons relating to the employer and during non-working hours.

Minnesota employees may have the right to consume newly approved edible hemp products outside of work and employers may have no right of objection. With the addition of edible cannabis products as a legal consumer product, employers may need to review their own employment and hiring practices to ensure that they do not conflict with Minnesota employment law regarding employee or job applicant use of edible cannabis products.
