Marijuana Oil Charges Can Be Fought
Protecting Your Rights
Minnesota law currently prohibits any type of marijuana use. Other countries do not, and so in Canada, you can buy weed online and quite effortlessly browse through all the different types available for purchase (you can read more here about a certain strain called Cookie Dough that’s become very popular over there), but be careful not to bring it across the border. However, possessing a small amount of weed is considered a petty misdemeanor, which isn’t classified as a crime in Minnesota. In 2014, the limited production and sale of medical marijuana to certain individuals for medical purposes was signed into law. This, however, didn’t mean that anyone could possess marijuana or any form of it and claim medical use. A valid prescription has to be in place when the law goes into effect.
The new law will permit the production of cannabis in pill, oil, and vapor form as well as the consumption of other products such as this CBD water by Caliper CBD, for example. Smoking marijuana will remain illegal, even if being smoked for medicinal reasons.
There are also restrictions on how medical marijuana can be grown and distributed. A person or company can only have up to two grow houses and eight distribution sites. State licenses will be required and highly regulated.
It is possible that the law will be expanded later. Until then, the law is very strict and that can result in criminal charges for possession of marijuana when marijuana oil is present. If it is more than a small amount, the charge can be for more than a petty misdemeanor.
