No, marijuana is NOT legal in Minnesota.
When the law is so restrictive that less than 300 patients qualify in the entire state, and some who do still choose the black market, it's not legal. At the rate our "Legalize It" shirts were flying off the shelves at the State Fair, many Minnesotans get this. The DFL and GOP legislators do not.
Monday, Gallup published a new poll showing that 49% of Americans think that "the federal government poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens." This is up from 30% in 2003. Gallup also asked participants, "In what ways do you see the government posing an immediate threat to rights and freedoms of its citizens?"
The Libertarian Party applauds the efforts of Campaign Zero to go beyond merely protesting the injustices perpetrated by law enforcement on citizens of the United States to proposing specific, well thought-through changes in government policy.
Another State Fair has come to a close, and the 2015 version of the Great Minnesota Get-Together was a huge success for the Libertarian Party of Minnesota. Our “Freedom on a Stick” slogan was extremely popular, with hundreds of people taking photos of our banner. Our booth had nearly four times the traffic compared to last year, and we had over 1,500 people sign up to be on our information contact list.
