Waite Park Officials To Consider Moratorium on THC Sales
WAITE PARK -- Waite Park officials will consider a moratorium on THC sold in the city.
During Monday's city council meeting, the council will consider approving the moratorium for up to a year to allow city staff time to consider licensing, rules and regulations, and sale management controls for THC food and beverages.
On July 1st, a new Minnesota law allows people over 21 to buy and consume food and beverages with no more than five milligrams of hemp-derived THC per serving and no more than 50 milligrams per package.
On July 5th the League of Minnesota Cities drafted a letter stating cities may want to consider regulating sellers of certain edibles and beverages infused with the cannabis ingredient THC.
St. Joseph is also considering a moratorium on THC sold in the city at their meeting Monday.
