Smoking cannabis or hemp products is prohibited in public places in Oakdale. A “public place” is defined as any indoor or outdoor area that is used or held out for use by the public whether owned or operated by public or private interests. This includes sidewalks, trails, parks, parking lots and any indoor space as prohibited by the Minnesota Clean Air Act. A violation of this ordinance is considered a petty misdemeanor.
Low-potency hemp edibles, such as THC gummies, may still be possessed and consumed in public spaces.
The City has established a moratorium that prohibits the establishment and operation of cannabis businesses until January 1, 2025, unless it is repealed sooner by the City Council.
Currently-operating medical cannabis businesses are exempt from the moratorium. Sales of low-potency cannabinoids continue to be legal in Oakdale for eligible businesses with a City license.
