House Defeats Bill To Legalize North Dakota Medical Marijuana

NORTH DAKOTA:  More than two-thirds of the North Dakota State House voted against a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana with a prescription.

House Bill 1430, which came to the House with a “do not pass” recommendation from the House Human Services Committee, failed 26-67, with one representative absent and not voting.

Three lawmakers spoke in favor of the bill, and three spoke against it.
