North Dakota Cannabis Regulations

State Cannabis Overview: North Dakota legalized medical Marijuana through a voter-approved measure in November 2016. However, sales did not start until 2019, when the first few licenses were approved. To date, only ten licenses have been issued, eight being dispensaries and the remaining two manufacturing facilities.

There has been a consistent increase in medical Marijuana sales in North Dakota, reaching an all-time high of $19.97 million in the 2022 fiscal year. This exceeds the market projections of $13 million in 2023 and $19 million by 2025.

Licensing: The State Department of Health in North Dakota oversees the licensing and regulation of medical marijuana businesses and is issuing Cannabis business licenses, including cultivation, manufacturing, laboratory, and dispensing (compassion center).

Local Authority: Local authorities play a significant role in shaping and regulating the cannabis market in North Dakota. While the state has legalized medical marijuana, it allows local governments to have some control over certain aspects of the industry within their jurisdictions. Municipalities have the power to:

  • Regulate zoning and land use
  • Tax Cannabis business
  • Regulate public consumption
  • Temporarily or permanently ban Cannabis businesses.
