North Dakota cannabis legalization campaign files 2022 ballot language

Follow New Approach North Dakota and support their effort to legalize cannabis!

logo-light-png.pngEarlier today, a committee of 25 North Dakotans filed a 2022 ballot initiative petition to legalize cannabis. After a review by the Secretary of State and Attorney General, New Approach North Dakota will begin collecting signatures from voters. The campaign must gather more than 15,582 valid signatures by July 11 to qualify the measure for the November 2022 ballot.

If approved by a majority of voters later this year, the measure would:

  • Allow adults 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of cannabis and cultivate up to three plants in their homes;
  • Establish retail cannabis stores, product manufacturers, testing laboratories, and other types of cannabis businesses; and
  • Direct regulators to establish rules and implement the adult-use cannabis program by October 1, 2023. 

The full text of the initiative language can be found at

If you live in North Dakota, please get involved as a volunteer. The campaign will also be hiring full-time and part-time petition circulators. Potential applicants are encouraged to apply through the campaign’s website.

Be sure to sign up for email alerts on the New Approach North Dakota website to follow their progress. And if you have friends or family in North Dakota, please forward this email to them!
