North Dakota Legal Information

The North Dakota Medical Marijuana Legalization creates a comprehensive medical cannabis program for the patients of the state. The program creates access for patients at retail dispensaries, but would also allow patients to grow up to 8 plants if they live 40 or more miles away from the nearest dispensary. The program will one of the strictest in the nation in that it would allow the ND Department of Health to conduct in-person patient interviews in order to determine eligibility. Despite this provision, the program will be a vast improvement upon the status quo.
