Opening a Dispensary in North Dakota
North Dakota is gearing up for the introduction of medical marijuana dispensaries across the state. However, the process to get involved has remained fairly complicated and vague as the state government has laid out relatively little information about how they will approve applicants and proposals.
Here’s what we do know:
How to Open a Dispensary in North Dakota
Under the current North Dakota rules, not just anyone can open a dispensary. Unlike other states, North Dakota has set very strict limits for how many dispensaries they will allow and which parts of the state will allow them.
Currently, the state is accepting applications from anyone interested in opening a dispensary along with a $5,000 non-refundable deposit on your business proposal. The state is really emphasizing the fact that they want complete business proposals with all of the details to make their decisions.
If your application is accepted, you can expect to fork over a $90,000 licensing fee for two years of operation in the state. Breaking into the marijuana industry in North Dakota is going to take a pretty hefty investment on your part before you even get started.
Right now, state officials say that they will begin reviewing applications and notifying applicants of their status between now and the end of the year. The hope is to get all of the licensing and preparation done in time for a spring 2018 launch.
