Commission OKs site for medical marijuana dispensary

The Minot Planning Commission is recommending approval of a conditional use permit for a medical marijuana dispensary in the Dakota Square area.

GR Vending ND was provisionally approved by the state to provide compassionate care facilities in four of the eight regions. In addition to Minot, the company was approved for Devils Lake, Dickinson and Jamestown. It also received one of two cultivator licenses and reported it has about 5,000 square feet of cultivated space in Fargo and is building a 50-square-foot indoor facility.

The proposed dispensary location in Minot is the same site previously approved by the planning commission and city council for another company that was applying for state approval but did not get it. GR Vending ND has purchased the property, according to the city.
