What is Considered a Drug Paraphernalia Crime in Minnesota?

We break down how Minnesota defines drug paraphernalia and the consequences if you're found in possession of it.

Medical Marijuana: What it Means for You, Legal or Not

Medical marijuana is a very controversial topic. Recently, there have been 16 states with pending legislation or ballot measures on medical marijuana: Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Advocates for medical marijuana state that the drug helps with chronic pain, nausea, vomiting, PTSD, and anxiety. They argue that marijuana can help patients cope with serious diseases and conditions like cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, seizures, and glaucoma. Those who are opposed to medical marijuana say the drug would be harder to regulate. They argue it could be a gateway to other drugs or laws, and say there is not enough evidence to prove the benefits of marijuana. With Colorado generating more than $1.4 million in medical marijuana sales tax and fees in its first month of January 2014, marijuana is catching a lot of states’ attention.
