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.
Human Services Committee Chairman Rep. Robin Weisz, R-Hurdsfield, spoke first. He said that while he might feel different if he had a sick child, he could not support HB 1430, as it was written.
