North Dakota is another state in the early stages of legalization. Citizens hope to place a recreational marijuana bill on the 2022 ballot next year. There are four medical dispensary regions open in the state.
Medical Use: Yes
Adult Use: No
Very limited. Vertical integration is required.
No sign of annual renewal fee, so overall the licensing is not too expensive.
Since there are only 8 dispensaries allowed in a state that is very uncrowded, competition is rather low.
North Dakota only requires a state tax that is low.
