After a hopeful adult use bill was defeated late last year, ND leadership opts to increase the amount allowed for medical pot patients
North Dakota recently announced that it will be increasing the amount of medical cannabis that can be sold at the state’s dispensaries. This move is expected to provide patients with better access to the medicine they need to manage their conditions.
Under the new rules, each patient will be allowed to purchase up to 6 ounces of medical cannabis every 30 days. This is a significant increase from the previous limit of 3 ounces per month. Additionally, the state’s dispensaries will be allowed to purchase up to 1,000 pounds of medical cannabis from licensed cultivators every month. This will ensure that there is enough supply to meet the growing demand for medical cannabis in the state.
The decision to increase the limit on medical cannabis sales was made after a review of the state’s medical cannabis program. The review found that the existing limits were too restrictive and prevented many patients from getting the medicine they needed. The increase in the limit is expected to improve access to medical cannabis for patients who need it.
This move has been welcomed by medical cannabis advocates in the state. They have long argued that the existing limits on medical cannabis sales were too restrictive and prevented many patients from getting the medicine they needed. The increase in the limit is seen as a step in the right direction and a victory for medical cannabis patients in the state.
North Dakota’s medical cannabis program has been growing steadily since it was first introduced in 2016. The program has seen an increase in the number of patients registered for medical cannabis, and the state’s dispensaries have been expanding to meet the growing demand.
Overall, the move to increase the limit on medical cannabis sales is expected to have a positive impact on patients in the state. It will ensure that they have better access to the medicine they need to manage their conditions and will help to continue the growth of North Dakota’s medical cannabis program.
