Dispensary opening date, multiple Medical Marijuana products available

The dispensary location in Fargo, The Botanist, will open one day later than earlier announced. The dispensary will open at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019.

“We apologize for any inconvenience the one-day delay in opening may cause qualifying patients and designated caregivers,” stated Jason Wahl, director of the Division of Medical Marijuana.

“Although we have seen in other states that most openings were limited to only dried leaves and flowers, we are excited that multiple product types will be available at the dispensary on opening day, including dried leaves and flowers, vaporizing pens, and shatter,” stated Wahl. “Even more product types will be available in the next few weeks.”

For a qualifying patient or designated caregiver to enter the display area of a dispensary, they must have their registry identification card. Over 130 registry identification cards have been issued to qualifying patients and designated caregivers. Information for applicants is available on the Division of Medical Marijuana’s website at www. ndhealth.gov/MM/.
