North Dakota could soon be surrounded by legalized marijuana

Submitted by Marijuana News on Mon, 11/30/2020 - 09:04

With Montana and South Dakota approving recreational marijuana ballot measures earlier this month and Minnesota's governor and most Democrats in favor, North Dakota could in a year or so be surrounded by marijuana retail stores.

To the north is Canada, which legalized marijuana nationally.

"I think it shows that it's not a left-wing or right-wing issue, it's a commonsense issue," said David Owen, who led the unsuccessful attempt in 2018 to legalize recreational marijuana in North Dakota as chairman of Legalize ND.

"People support legalization when they become fully informed," he said.

Owen said there could possibly be moves in the North Dakota Legislature's next session that starts in January to at least fully decriminalize possession of a small amount of marijuana.

If not, he said the troops of supporters will likely try to gather enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot again in 2022. In 2018, after a heated campaign, the measure failed by a 59% to 41% margin.
