BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Those qualifying for medical marijuana and their caregivers can apply for registry cards in North Dakota beginning Oct. 29.
The North Dakota Department of Health plans to print and mail medical marijuana registry cards in December. Those who apply must pay a $50 annual application fee and provide written proof from a health care provider that the applicant has a debilitating medical condition.
The state aims to have all eight dispensaries around North Dakota open by June 30. Two of the eight applicants selected to operate dispensaries in Bismarck and Fargo have not yet received local government approval or met state requirements. And, one of the two proposed medical marijuana manufacturing facilities is still awaiting state approval.
