Bismarck, ND: Members of the state House and Senate have approved legislation (Senate Bill 2068) increasing the quantity of THC-containing products that patients may legally possess at any one time.
House members advanced the bill by a vote of 77 to 16. Members of the Senate passed it by a vote of 34 to 14. The measure now awaits action from Republican Gov. Doug Burgum.
Under the state’s medical cannabis access law, registered patients are not permitted to either purchase or possess a supply of THC-infused products totaling more than 4,000 milligrams in any 30-day period. The pending legislation raises this 30-day cap to 6,000 milligrams.
According to the state’s Department of Health & Human Services website, over 9,000 residents are currently registered to obtain medical cannabis products at state-licensed dispensaries.
