Medical Marijuana Cards in North Dakota
The North Dakota marijuana card is an essential tool for anyone who wants to enjoy access to medical marijuana within the Peace Garden State. Before the popular vote that established the Measure 5 law on medical marijuana, North Dakota was one of the states with the most restrictive policy on marijuana.
Now you can use a registry identification card to obtain a regular supply of medical marijuana to treat conditions that respond better to this powerful herb. Medical marijuana is effective for treating a wide range of debilitating conditions such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, Glaucoma, Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Crohn’s Disease and Chronic Pain.
At MarijuanaDoctors.com, we’re committed to helping you enjoy the full benefits of this medication by helping you find doctors to certify you as a patient who needs marijuana while helping you apply for and obtain a state marijuana ID card.
Benefits of Obtaining a North Dakota Marijuana Card
- Get effective treatment for your medical condition — With your marijuana card, enjoy continuous treatment for any of the ailments listed above and any other condition approved by the state Department of Health. Instead of struggling with conventional remedies and opiate painkillers that aren’t very effective, your card will allow you to enjoy potent strains of marijuana in the form of oils, tinctures, capsules and edibles.
- Obtain the supply of medical marijuana you need — After you’ve registered to use medical marijuana in North Dakota, you’ll be free to walk into any licensed dispensary and obtain your recommended dose of marijuana. You may even purchase more than the recommended dose as long as you don’t exceed the maximum amount specified for the compassionate medical marijuana initiative. Under this regulation, you’ll be permitted to keep three ounces of medical marijuana for two weeks.
- Take care of marijuana patients — The marijuana ID card allows you to serve as a caregiver for up to five patients. You can also help minors obtain their recommended dose of this medication. For patients over 18 years of age, you can be designated as a caregiver to help them purchase marijuana from a dispensary.
- Grow your own marijuana — In North Dakota, your card permits you to grow your marijuana if you can’t find a dispensary within 40 miles of your residence. Presently, the state law allows you to grow a maximum of eight plants within a locked facility that’s at least 1,000 feet from the nearest public school. This will allow you to obtain the best seedlings and grow high-quality marijuana. You’ll also enjoy the privilege of using the plant and its flowers to treat yourself in a more creative way.
- Legal protection — North Dakota has very strict laws that govern the possession, cultivation and sale of marijuana. Your card will enable you to sail through inspections by law enforcement agents without getting arrested. As long as you don’t violate the laws of the compassionate care initiative, you’ll be able to use your medical marijuana without any harassment or penalties.
