In 2012 the fight to legalize Medical Marijuana in North Dakota began by the National Organization for The Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). This reform however isn't as successful as many thought it would be. Many states surrounding North Dakota have even stopped criminalizing people for marijuana possession, but in North Dakota it is still consider a high crime even if they are using it to treat chronic diseases such as Cancer. In 2012 North Dakotans for Compassionate Care submitted signatures to petition for medical marijuana laws, making residents eligible to vote for the new laws. Apparently though 11 petitioners faked nearly 7,000 signatures and it was immediately dismissed. In 2013 NORML is still fighting to allow residents of North Dakota to fight for mandated marijuana laws.
