Oh good, our own category
They should have made us grey, like a duck
We’re fucking #1 in everything!!
Excepting flower and concentrates
Ours needs an asterisk with the description being that it's only because our Republicans failed reading comprehension.
We need a “passed because people forgot to read the bill” category.
Don't forget SD voted for recreational but the ballot vote has been ignored by their SC - https://www.npr.org/2021/11/24/1058884032/south-dakotas-supreme-court-rules-against-legalization-of-recreational-marijuana
It's an example of absolute failed democracy. They voted for it, their gov and sc shot it down. Then, their state representative voted against it when it went to house ballot. Their state rep voted against something the public voted for. And no one cares because it's sd and as long as they vote republican they don't care that their elected officials are blatantly ignoring something they want. It's really wild when you think about it.
In my circles wild is slang for fn crazy/batshit, or something similar. You're picking an argument over semantics, my social contract is just fine.
Cool ✌️ stay mad
Hot damn that's bad. Their SC ruled that recreational use, medical use, and hemp are three different issues and therefore can be struck down. They can't say that pot use is against their constitution, so they reach for anything they can use to strike it down whether they believe their BS or not.
The 3.2 state strikes again
Or just take two? Is that an option?
Kind of like how I can just drink twice as many 3.2 beers to get the same buzz.
Beers are filling, edibles are not
I mean my friend makes edibles and the brownies she makes are huge. Much more filling than my radler.
Edibles are expensive though
Yes we sell 3.2 here (god knows why), but who the hell buys that when there are so many liquor stores open 7 days a week?
So can my employer fire me if I test positive for THC? Legally that is.
Of course. There is no drug test that can differentiate between THC from legal hemp derived MN gummies or regular Marijuana in any form.
That and we are an "at will employment" state so my question was probably pretty dumb.
I guess my best advice would be to avoid jobs that screen for TCH if you're worried. I know that isn't always easy depending on where you are in the state and what qualifications you have. I've heard that most employers who do drug screen though aren't really concerned about THC anymore because of how common it is, and I doubt they're about to get uppity about it now that its officially legal. This is all just what I've heard tho so take this with a grain of salt.
I wonder if that would hold up as a cause though? A Colorado judge in the past few months Colorado declared that dogs cannot give reasonable cause to search anymore since a hyper majority if not all of them were trained to find weed and can't give a indicated difference between weed and other drugs.
I would wonder if a job fired you only because THC was present in your system (even if it's at will basically all employers try to have a reason to avoid racial or sex discrimination accusations). If the sole reason was a failed THC involved test I wonder if it could be argued that the test is an invalid test due to food contamination?

It's shit but in my defense I'm under the influence.
This is so funny to me 😆
I am an ardent supporter of legalization but NOT for edibles and beverages. I think there is a real concern about marketing to minors (like the tobacco industry), confusing packaging and branding, unpredictable dosing, and in my experience edibles have the least predictable effects. You can stop smoking or vaping if you get too high, eat a snack drink some water and be okay. Edibles take longer to have an effect, and then people take more than they should and once over ingested there's really no going back. Of all the ways Minnesota could have approached this, I think this is the worst.
You know it’s easier for minors to get edibles when it’s illegal right? Why can’t adults enjoy something? A vague fear for the children? Legalization in other states has shown it keeps it out of the hands of children. If edibles stay illegal there will just be a huge black market for them.
I'd love your citation about minors access to cannabis products under various legal situations so I too can use it! For reasons of self interest, I just don't want legal cannabis suppliers to have to raise prices due to the kind of lawsuits the tobacco companies have had regarding their "marketing to youth." I think there is a better case that "sour diesel patch kids" could be compelling to youth than a camel in sunglasses. I think you'll also notice most of my concerns about edibles are age neutral. Its not like it's hardly even possible to overconsume cannabis to the point it's life threatening...I just want everyone to have a nice time. Weed products have gotten really strong over the years, especially for novices of any age.
Would also love to see incentives for growers and retailers to NOT be big tobacco subsidiaries, but that's a whole nother debate. Definitely not trying to fear monger about kids getting pot candy for Halloween or anything like that.
“Sour Diesel Patch Kids” is a black market product that only exists ***because*** of the prohibition of edibles.
I feel like its pretty much understood the Gas Station and Liquor stores ID you before selling you a product, where a drug dealer would be less inclined to do so. Are you seriously asking for data that proves drug dealers sell drugs to kids? What would you need to see to believe that kids have easier access to weed than cigarettes?
I definitely want to avoid the shady practices of advertising to kids but I don't think giving something fruity flavors is advertising to kids, I've never agreed with that logic with cigarettes, we don't use that logic for alcohol so I don't know why it needs to apply to cannabis.
What? Edibles are the ideal consumption method for people with lung issues and for people that cannot be smoking for health reasons.
Just legalize it all, it should be for responsible adults anyways; kids shouldn’t even be part of the discussion.
As a frequent edibles enjoyer, I disagree. For one, I don't particularly enjoy the smoking part of weed. Edibles allow me to get the high from THC I'm looking for without having to deal with inhaling burning biomatter.
Second, the edibles I have currently, which we got from Michigan, are surprisingly consistent. There are some times I've felt I didn't get high enough based on previous experience with the same dosage, but I've never gotten a result that was wildly more potent than what I was used to either. There is some variance, but its not to bad and finding trustable brands should just come with trial and error.
I think part of the issue with getting to high on edibles is partly to do with the fact that super high concentrate was allowed to be sold in Minnesota until this recent bill passed. The stuff that's legal now is much more reasonable and should be far less likely to make someone violently sick.
To be fair, it was completely accidental.
Accident is a very generous take! Incompetent. The GOP is incompetent. It is after all their job the read and comprehend the bills they vote on. I'm just shocked they admitted to their incompetence this time.
Not really. "Completely accidental" implies because of a misworded bill or something. This was intentional from the author it's just that Republicans didn't read it. Because of incompetence, not an accident.
It should all be illegal, Alcohol and tobacco too

That statement is subjective and not at all what the majority of users experience.
This is what I hate about weed. Everything is all subjective random shit made up by stoners. Really wish there was actual data on some of this shit.
Wow ok. So no just no. First off marajuana *is* hemp, it was simply selectively bred for specific traits to concentrate the psychoactive chemicals present in all hemp. There is no difference chemically between the THC derived from agricultural hemp and marajuana it simply takes much more of the one to get the same amount of the substance. Finally delta 8 THC and delta 10 are both present along with the O.G. delta 9 along with CBD and literally hundreds of other chemicals that effect your expierence, which is why I believe its a mistake to separate them and take them individually as it totally alters the expierence.
You can derive Δ9THC from hemp, and it will be exactly the same
