In July, edible cannabis products became legal in the state, but the legislation that opened up that door had minimal regulation and no taxation requirements.
In the past month, the cities of Marshall, Robbinsdale and St. Joseph approved moratoriums on sales. Other cities across Minnesota are also considering moratoriums as they weigh how they'll tackle enforcement.
Gummies and edibles from the program are separate from the hemp-derived edible cannabis products that became legal in Minnesota at the beginning of July.
The meeting, which convened just over a year after the beginning of the state's Medical Cannabis Program, covered budget issues, accreditation of dispensaries and the availability of physicians to prospective cardholders.

Lawmakers that helped push the new rule through the Minnesota Capitol said they were working on fixes around enforcement, next steps to fully legalize marijuana for adult use.
Under the new law, people 21 and older can buy products containing servings of up to 5 milligrams of THC. A single package of edibles — or drinkables — may not contain more than 50 milligrams.
