Medical Cannabis Company Drops Lawsuit Against Minnesota

The company had alleged the state's hemp-derived THC law discriminated against cannabis.

Vireo Health, a medical cannabis company, has dropped its lawsuit against the state of Minnesota, according to the Star Tribune.

The company filed to dismiss late last month and a judge granted the request last week.

The state recently passed a law allowing adults 21 and over to buy edibles with hemp-derived THC.

Vireo is one of a few companies in Minnesota legally allowed to distribute medical cannabis in the state.

The company alleged that law discriminates against cannabis-derived edibles.

Vireo said that cannabis-derived and hemp-derived THC edibles are “chemically identical.”

The company also warned that hemp-derived THC is not as strictly regulated as cannabis products.
