North Dakota’s cannabis prohibition began in the 1930s and still stretches on today. Decades later in 2016, the state finally made some leeway and passed the North Dakota Compassionate Care Act which legalized medical cannabis within the state. This meant that patients who were certified by a physician with a qualifying condition could purchase up to 3 ounces of marijuana flower. This act did have some restrictions, like the fact that no more than two producers and eight dispensaries were only allowed to open in the state and delivery is not legal. Originally, the law did allow home grow, but in 2017 legislation passed that made home cultivation illegal. Later in 2019, North Dakota decriminalized possession of less than half an ounce of cannabis to just a maximum fine of $1000 and no jail time. Of course, while decriminalization is wonderful, we’re hoping that soon North Dakota finally legalizes adult-use recreational cannabis.
