December 10, 2019 GMT

DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — The final medical marijuana dispensary is set to open this week in North Dakota. The eighth dispensary is expected to open in Dickinson on Friday.

Jason Wahl, director of the Division of Medical Marijuana, says opening the final dispensary is a milestone for the program.

The state has issued more than 1,850 identification cards to qualifying patients, Wahl said. North Dakota is the first in the nation to add an electronic card option for patients, caregivers and agents of dispensaries and manufacturing facilities.

Other dispensaries are located in Bismarck, Devils Lake, Fargo, Jamestown, Grand Forks, Minot and Williston.
