Will Recreational Marijuana Soon Be Legal in North Dakota?

NORTH DAKOTA — North Dakota may see a future with legal recreational marijuana if supporters can get enough signatures.

Secretary of State, Al Jaeger, approved the petition for circulation on Friday and says about 13,500 qualified signatures are needed to put it to a statewide vote next year.

According to sponsors the petition is looking to make it legal to grow, possess, use and distribute for people 21 and older.

It also seeks to seal the records of anyone convicted of a marijuana–related crime that would be made legal under the measure.
