Although medical marijuana is now legal in more than half the country, the patchwork of laws continues to create problems. Many believe that as long as there is a demand for marijuana that is not being met by legal and licensed growers, a black market will continue to exist.
Minnesota's very limited medical marijuana law is set to go into effect later this year. But according to news sources, some Minnesotans have been part of a larger drug trafficking ring for years; bringing pot into the state to be resold. Recently, it was announced that law enforcement agencies have indicted 32 people in a pot-trafficking ring, including some alleged key players in Minnesota.
