Rulemaking for Dried Raw Cannabis

Rules Finalized on or Before March 1, 2022

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Office of Medical Cannabis is developing new rules to implement the addition of dried raw cannabis as an approved medical cannabis delivery form.

Minnesota lawmakers passed legislation in 2021 that will allow registered medical cannabis patients 21 and older to smoke dried raw cannabis.

MDH collected public comments on draft preliminary rules through Nov. 8, 2021. The rules will be finalized after public comments and additional information are considered. The law requires that the rules be finalized on or before March 1, 2022.

About the Public Comment Process

Public comments provide an opportunity for members of the public to be involved in the rulemaking process and share opinion, expertise, or additional facts that will benefit MDH in making the best-informed decisions before finalizing these rules. There is no required format for public comments. However, comments that are specific, supported by evidence, and focused on the subject of the rulemaking are likely to have a more significant impact on MDH's decision-making.

Public comment is no longer being accepted. Thank you to everyone who submitted a comment. To view the public comments received, visit the Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings.
