ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Two new pro-cannabis political parties in Minnesota that have guaranteed spots on the state ballot are gearing up for the 2020 campaign. The Grassroots-Legalize Cannabis Party and the Legal Marijuana Now Party gained major-party status after their candidates performed better than 5% in two statewide elections in 2018. Minnesota Public Radio News reports that the Grassroots-Legalize Cannabis Party sent petitions to the governor and others proposing the decriminalization of cannabis.
