St. Paul City Council Shows 6-1 Support of Marijuana Legalization

Wednesday night, the St. Paul City Council voted 6-1 in favor of “supporting legalization and decriminalization of recreational cannabis in Minnesota and expungement of Minnesotan records of convicted cannabis crimes.” The one vote in opposition to the resolution came from Council member Dan Bostrom, who would announce his retirement later on during the same meeting.

St. Paul, the ‘Twin City” to Minneapolis, is estimated to have over 300,000 residents living within city limits. According to a 2017 estimate by the United States Census Bureau, the Minneapolis – St. Paul metropolitan area holds a population of over three million and is the 16th largest metropolitan area in the United States.

In 2018, Michigan legalized recreational marijuana as Missouri and Utah voted in favor of legalizing marijuana for medical use.
