@MJINews: North Dakota Developing Plan of Action for Medical #Marijuana
On Nov. 28, 2016, the North Dakota Department of Health announced that it has been holding regular meetings to develop a plan of action for the implementation of Measure 5, the medical marijuana initiative recently approved by state residents.
Measure 5, also known as the North Dakota Compassionate Care Act, is scheduled to become law on Dec. 8; however, the NDDOH’s announcement explained that medical marijuana won’t be available right away as the department has to figure out how to fund the measure’s implementation, and then it has to develop regulations for licensing patients, caregivers, compassion centers and facilities, as well as enforcement regulations and seed-to-sale tracking procedures.
According to the department, “The NDDOH is seeking legal guidance to provide clarity to address conflicting provisions in the measure and further define terms, while still protecting the integrity of the measure approved by the voters.”
Patients with cancer, AIDS, hepatitis C, ALS, glaucoma, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others, will be able to apply for acceptance into the medical marijuana program once the state launches a patient registration system.
