Hellmuth & Johnson Attorney Carol Moss Discusses Changes to Minnesota’s Cannabis Law with MinnPost

MinnPost interviewed Carol Moss, Hellmuth & Johnson partner, and chair of the firm’s Cannabis Law practice group, about proposed changes to Minnesota’s cannabis law.

Another provision in the bill suggests a new definition of farmer who is eligible for social equity status for cannabis cultivator licenses.

In changing the definition of “emerging farmer” to “currently a farmer or an aspiring cannabis farmer who faces barriers to education​ or employment,” Carol Moss commented, “That definition was so overly broad to the point it was not workable. Just about every applicant could find a way to pigeonhole themselves in as an ‘emerging farmer,’” she said. “Plus, I have doubts it could pass constitutional challenges that we know will be inevitable.”
