Recreational marijuana became legal in Minnesota August 1st. Stearns County Sheriff Steve Soyka joined me on WJON to discuss what, if anything has changed. He says they have seen limited changes in the amount of marijuana issues since the law change which he says is a "good thing".
The State legislature is likely to address the possibility of legalizing marijuana for more than medical use during the 2020 legislative session. State Representative Tim O'Driscoll from Sartell joined me on WJON today.
With over 60 overdoses in a week within Minneapolis, synthetic marijuana has recently seen a large spike in the Twin Cities. Here in Central Minnesota, the drug, more commonly known as K2 or Spice isn't as large a concern, however, authorities are keeping an eye out.
