Possession of small amount of marijuana wax, not a felony!

Possession of Small Amounts of Marijuana, including dabs/wax/hash oil, does not qualify as a felony in the State of Minnesota.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) has recently changed its policy on how it reports the chemical makeup of marijuana wax, a.k.a. dabs/hash oil.  The BCA can only establish that a substance contains THC.  They can’t identify what part of the marijuana plant the substance came from, or how it was manufactured, because there is no definition for dabs/wax/hash oil under Minnesota law.

Minnesota statutes define marijuana.  But they exclude from the definition the mature stalks, as wells as the seeds, oils, and cakes from those seeds.

Why is this important?  The BCA can not determine the difference between dabs/wax/hash oil and a small amount of marijuana.  Consequently, a person cannot be convicted of a felony for possessing less than 42.5 grams of dabs/wax/hash oil.  If you or someone you know has been charged with a felony for this same action, you are not guilty of a felony.  But, in order to win this determination, you have to fight the charges and the definition therein.  Get a lawyer.
