A new Minnesota law allows people over the age of 21 to buy and consume food and beverages with a small amount of cannabinoids.
According to the new law, food and beverages can't have more than 5 grams of cannabinoid derived from cannabis per serving and 50 grams per package.
Although marijuana is still illegal in Minnesota, it is still possible to derive the same amount of THC from other plants. Marijuana and hemp are both derived from the same cannabis plant, but the plants are bred differently, with marijuana plants high in THC and hemp plants low in it.
The high of marijuana is caused by the chemical called THC.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Delta-8 THC is similar to the standard Delta-9 THC. Delta-8 can be found in trace amounts. Delta-9 has the same amount of high as Delta-8.
Delta-8 can be found at gas stations and convenience stores. Legislators in Minnesota wanted to regulate this market.
During the Minnesota legislative session in May, an amendment was passed that did not allow the use of marijuana.
Tina Liebling, a Democrat from Rochester, said, "Oh, are you joking?" Absolutely, you have. It's just a joke. We'll do that next.
