October 20, 2022 · Ganjapreneur

According to a MinnPost/Embold Research poll, 60% of Minnesotans support the recently-passed law allowing up to 5 milligrams of hemp-derived THC in food and beverage products. The poll found that 21% opposed the legalization of any “edibles that get people high.” 

Another 7% of respondents said state lawmakers were “correct to legalize the sale of edibles derived from hemp, but not edibles derived from marijuana.”  

The edible legalization reforms were backed by 60% of women; 59% of men; 71% of respondents aged 18- 34 years old and those aged 35- 49 years old; 56% of respondents 50- 64 years old, and 49% of those 65-and-older.  

Sixty-one percent of people of color polled agreed with the reforms, 60% of White people polled, along with 60% of both college educated, and non-college-educated respondents. Three out of four respondents who voted for President Joe Biden (D) backed the reforms, along with 42% of those who voted for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election – in all 76% of Democrats, 64% of independents, 43% of Republicans approved the edibles bill. 

Another 35% of Republicans said the state should not have legalized any edibles that get people high, along with 19% of independents, and 9% of Democrats.  

The poll included 1,585 voters across Minnesota between October 10 and October 14. Full Story
