Bismarck  (CSi-NDDoH) Jamestown is one of eight regions the North Dakota Department of Health has established  for medical marijuana dispensaries within the Medical Marijuana Program.  (Dispensaries)

The regions include a 50 mile radius surrounding eight cities within the state. The cities include: Fargo, Bismarck/Mandan, Grand Forks, Minot, Williston, Dickinson, Jamestown and Devils Lake. State law allows up to eight dispensaries to be registered by the NDDoH. A map can be found on the Division of Medical Marijuana’s website at

State Health Officer Mylynn Tufte, says, “By establishing eight regions, the North Dakota Department of Health is able to provide access to dispensaries to the majority of the population in the state with as minimal travel as possible.”

A dispensary can be located anywhere within one of the regions. While the same entity can apply in multiple regions, the proposed rules only allow the same entity to possess one registration certificate.

Under the NDDoH plan, qualifying patients will be able to obtain usable marijuana at any dispensary. However, the NDDoH will be tracking purchased amounts and qualifying patients will not be able to purchase more than 2.5 ounces of dried leaves and flowers and 2,000 mg of THC total from all other products every 30 days. Qualifying patients must have specific authorization from their health care provider in order to purchase dried leaves and flowers.
