Burgum signs off on delay for medical marijuana law

  • 0

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has signed a bill that delays parts of the state’s new medical marijuana law.

The governor’s spokesman Mike Nowatzki said Senate Bill 2154 was signed Thursday. It suspends certain parts of the Compassionate Care Act, which was approved by voters in November, to give the state Health Department more time to craft rules for the drug.

The suspension lasts through July 31 or the effective date of legislation authorizing the prescription, dispensing, growth and use of medical marijuana, whichever happens first.

Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, R-Dickinson, said a medical marijuana bill will go before the Delayed Bills Committee Friday morning.
