Home Cultivation Bill Stalls in North Dakota Senate
The North Dakota Senate voted Jan. 28 to kill Sen. Oley Larsen’s S.B. 2234, legislation that would have allowed registered medical cannabis patients and caregivers to grow up to eight cannabis plants, according to The Bismarck Tribune.
Larsen told the news outlet that the bill was meant to improve medical cannabis access in the state for patients who have trouble visiting dispensaries.
Opponents of the legislation, including law enforcement officers, expressed concerns about how growing operations would be regulated, The Bismarck Tribune reported.
Other medical cannabis-related bills currently pending in the state legislature would allow patients to access edibles, as well as restructure the state’s medical cannabis advisory board, according to the news outlet.
