State Sets Tentative Timeline for Medical Pot System
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — State health officials have set a tentative timeline for establishing a medical marijuana industry in North Dakota.
The Health Department is asking those interested in being a manufacturer or a distributor to notify the agency by July 28. That will give officials a better idea about interest.
The department tentatively plans to accept actual applications in August and September. The agency would review them in October and make selections in early November.
Officials estimate it will take manufacturers about six months to set up facilities and grow the first crop of medical marijuana. If the timeline plays out, the drug would be available to patients next spring.

Government Pot Is Still Horrible—And You Can Blame This DEA Trick
Last August, the DEA managed a remarkable two-fer: in one fell swoop, the nation’s loyal federal drug police quashed while delivering new hope.
Judging by what’s happened since, the nation’s loyal drug police may also have played us all for fools, all while maintaining the mendacious game of circular logic that’s keeping marijuana federally illegal.
On August 12, 2016, the DEA formally rejected a petition that would have seen marijuana reclassified from Schedule Iof the Controlled Substances Act, the official government list of the world’s most dangerous drugs. The reason, acting DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg said at the time, was a lack of scientific evidence demonstrating marijuana had any medical value.
Placing cannabis in Schedule II, as the petition requested, would not have legalized marijuana, but it would have allowed doctors to prescribe the drug. It would also have made marijuana easier for scientists to study—and, presumably, discover the very evidence which, despite almost 50 years of federal prohibition and a DEA monopoly on research-grade cannabis, other researchers have managed to find.
