INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENTS State by State Minnesota Regulators are adding medical marijuana edibles to the list of products available to MMJ patients, a move that could boost sales for both processors and dispensaries. The state health department said it would approve cannabis-infused edibles in the form of " gummies and chews, " effective Aug. 1, 2022. The department is undertaking the rulemaking process for labeling, safety messaging, packaging and testing. Starting in March, patients also will be eligible to purchase smokable cannabis flower. New Jersey Regulators started taking grower, processor and testing lab license applications Dec. 15. Dispensary applications may be submitted beginning March 15, although existing medical marijuana operators are likely to be the first to start selling recreational cannabis. Roughly 70% of New Jersey municipalities have at least initially decided not to allow recreational marijuana sales.
