Growing Marijuana In North Dakota

North Dakota weed growing may not be at the top of your to-do list, but if you are in North Dakota and are looking to grow your own marijuana, you might be curious how to do it. The first thing to keep in mind is that North Dakota is pretty harsh when it comes to marijuana.

About growing cannabis in North Dakota:

The state arrests those with even ½ oz of marijuana in their possession, and it only increases the amount of weed you have.

There aren’t any laws concerning cultivation, but they consider it the same as possession. If you think about it, it’s kind of hard to grow a plant that’s less than ½ an ounce.

    North Dakota laws

    North Dakota laws

    There isn’t a lot going on in North Dakota. The state has few cities and a flat endless terrain of fields. Lately, North Dakota has seen a growing oil industry, one which the state cannot even supply enough workers for. 

    For that reason, there have been a large amount of out-of-state temporary workers, who are making money in this otherwise quiet state.  These workers may not be aware of North Dakota weed laws, especially if they come from more liberal Minnesota, Montana or Nebraska.

    North Dakota weed growing does not seem to be a high priority issue for this state, based on their straightforward, unfazed-by-recent-drug-law-changes, policies. 

    North Dakota has not instituted many of the policies other pro-prohibition states have, such as tax stamps, mandatory minimums or civil forfeiture. Instead, they keep it simple- have weed, go to jail.  It makes you wonder how much they care.

    North Dakota recently put a medical marijuana program into place, allowing those with physician’s recommendations to possess, obtain, and smoke marijuana.

    For a short time, this meant some home cultivation was allowed for patients living 40 miles away from a dispensary, but unfortunately that no longer applies.

    North Dakota now has a medical marijuana program, but it was only possible for medical marijuana patients to grow legally for a very short while.

    In January 2017 the law was once again changed with the passing of Senate Bill 2344, which sets up a dispensary program in the state. Until the laws change again, it is important to keep your grow operation as hidden as possible.

    The best way to approach North Dakota weed growing is the expectation that you will need to stay discrete. Even though they have a conditional release program that gives first-time offenders somewhat of a pass, no need pushing your luck.

    In North Dakota, it is important to focus on not getting caught.  The best way to do that is to spend some time creating an indoor or outdoor garden that is virtually undetectable.

      1. Dear Sirs, I am looking to purchase THC Oil (Rick SImpson oil). please let me know if this is something you can source and if so what the quantities/pricing is. Warm Regards

      2. For at least the last 20 years. Minnesota has the worst weed on the planet. North Dakota has way better weed.

      3. I see right through this. When he fails with another team, it’ll just make Harbaugh look like a better coach. Nice play, Jim.

      4. All I can tell people in ND, is goid luck. You are being fought against by the attorney general, Stenjhem. He will do whatever it takes to foil any and all marijuana businesses. I lived there for over 20 years and watched as he tried many times to negate the voting results of the very idea of putting it on the ballot. Now, they drag their feet since the voters spoke up.

      5. I want to start a Pharmacy for Medical Marijuana in Minot, ND and would like to receive more info on this and possibly connecting with someone like Jeffery to have ND product used for pharmacy. Please advise ??

      6. My family owns land 120+acres in north Dakota which in the past has been used solely for growing wheat, soy beans etc. What kind of a license do we need to grow medical Marijuana? And what are the costs?

        • Hi Mark, it’s probably best to check with your county how to get the necessary papers in order. We’re too far off to ensure correct infomation. Let us know if your plans take off!

        • I would like to learn mor about becoming a legal medical marijuana grower in N.D.
