Cannabis Policy in North Dakota
After a promising medical marijuana program, North Dakota becoming the 25th state to eliminate jail time for low-level marijuana possessions and a petition to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana for adult use getting fast signatures, the future was looking bright for legalization.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the amount of signatures needed to put legalization on the ballot wasn't reached and sales of medical marijuana were slowed due to stay-at-home orders. We encourage you to reach out to your local and state lawmakers to voice your opinion on legalization.
