The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is inviting written comments on medical cannabis products label contents. As part of a current laboratory testing rulemaking, we are also exploring improvements to existing requirements for what must be on the labels of medical cannabis products. MDH is seeking input from members of the public with experience with medical cannabis on the following question: Is there information currently not included on the label of medical cannabis products in Minnesota that should be? Please explain the benefits of including the information on the label. Send all written comments to Health.Cannabis.Regs@state.mn.us by 12:00 pm (noon) on February 21, 2017.
