ND House Passes Bills Making Changes To Medical Marijuana Program

(Bismarck, ND) --The North Dakota House is pushing two bills forward that make improvements to the state's medical marijuana program.  

One of the bills would make edibles available to patients using the program. The other would restructure the program's advisory board to include representatives from manufacturing facilities, dispensaries, and patients.  

There are currently no requirements for sitting on the six-member board. The second bill would also expand the number of designated caregivers per patient from one to five and eliminate the caregiver application fee.  

The bills will now head to the Senate.
