Medical marijuana to make debut soon in N.D.
Posted 11/30/16 (Wed) - by
The North Dakota Department of Health has been meeting regularly to take steps towards implementation of Measure 5, otherwise known as the Compassionate Care Act, which was recently approved by North Dakota residents.
The measure will legalize marijuana use for qualifying patients suffering from certain medical conditions.
Qualifying patients will be able to obtain marijuana for medical use through a network of designated caregivers and dispensaries, known as compassion centers. The Compassionate Care Act places the registration, licensing, regulation and enforcement functions with the NDDoH.
Under North Dakota Century Code, Measure 5 becomes state law 30 days after the date of the election.
