North Dakota Cannabis Caucus Takes to the Capitol

A group calling itself the North Dakota Cannabis Caucus was at the capitol today, and plans to be there every week to discuss marijuana reform with legislators; specifically medical marijuana.

A large portion of the caucus is made up of Measure 3 supporters. They met tonight to discuss their testimony.

The grass-roots group is disappointed in the length of time it’s taking to make medical marijuana available for patients.

The Governor’s budget proposal outlines zero dollars under the medical marijuana line item.

The caucus’s goal is to make sure there is a budget for the program for the next two years,
and to keep the cannabis-reform conversation alive.

Disabled caucus member Chris Nolden shares, “I have at least four of the conditions that qualify for this, and my doctors have nowhere else to go, period. Once you’ve tried every substance that they can give you, and it’s almost killed you, there is no where else to go. Because if they give it to you anymore, you’re just going to die.”

Several people in attendance told KX News this process has taken far too long.
