The legality of marijuana in Minnesota

In 1976, marijuana was largely decriminalized in Minnesota. This, however, does not mean that marijuana can be used freely. It is important to distinguish clearly between decriminalization and legalization, as they are two different things. Decriminalization means that an illegal act will be subject to much lower criminal charges. This often means that a person found in possession of a small amount of marijuana is more likely to be charged with a petty misdemeanor rather than a felony.
