The Status of Cannabis Legalization in North Dakota

Cannabis in North Dakota was legalized for medical purposes in 2016 but remains illegal for recreational purposes. Possession of small recreational amounts is a misdemeanor crime.

State marijuana laws vary quite a bit from one state to the next, with some states continuing to put people in jail for simple possession and others fully legalizing its recreational use. Regardless, marijuana remains illegal under federal drug laws that often run counter to state decriminalization efforts. Federal marijuana laws are likely to change, however, since there is more support among voters and because the federal government has decided not to interfere with state decriminalization laws.

North Dakota has legalized medical marijuana, but dispensary and delivery services are not yet open for business. Once given a doctor’s recommendation, North Dakotans may purchase at their nearest dispensary storefront or order for delivery when those businesses are accessible, but cannot be consumed in public.
