State May Allow People to Self-Certify as Medical Marijuana Patients

The bill is heading to North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum's desk.

North Dakota could soon allow some people to self-certify as medical marijuana patients.

According to Marijuana Moment, a recent bill seeks to give that right to patients admitted to hospice care.

The legislation passed in both the state senate and house, and will now head to Governor Doug Burgum.

The bill would let hospice patients use proof of admittance instead of a doctor’s recommendation.

The legislation also requires that application fees be waived for self-certifying hospice care patients.

North Dakota legalized medical cannabis but voters in the state recently rejected a ballot measure to legalize recreational cannabis.
