A Grand Forks medical marijuana dispensary has entered into a business deal with the Bismarck growing facility, Pure Dakota.

The dispensary, Strive Life North Dakota, has entered into a letter of intent agreement with Pure Dakota, according to a news release from Item 9 Labs, an Arizona-based marijuana consulting company.

The agreement will ensure a consistent supply of medical marijuana as soon as Strive Life opens its doors, the release said. The dispensary is expected to open in April or May.

"We look forward to having Pure Dakota as one of our main inventory suppliers," Sara Gullickson, CEO of Item 9 Labs, said in the release.

Pure Dakota operates a 20,000-square-foot facility and houses 1,000 marijuana plants in north Bismarck.
