The North Dakota Legislature's Administrative Rules Committee has signed off on proposed rules for the state's developing medical marijuana program.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Legislature's Administrative Rules Committee has signed off on proposed rules for the state's developing medical marijuana program. The rules approved by the State Health Council in January cover such things as testing, security and transportation requirements.
 
     The Health Department can now move forward with application periods for medical marijuana manufacturers, dispensaries, patients and caregivers. The agency is aiming to have the drug available to patients late this year - two years after voters approved it.
 
     Fargo state Rep. Mary Schneider questioned the two-year lag. Medical Marijuana Division Director Jason Wahl said the time frame is in line with what other states that have set up medical marijuana programs have experienced. He also said North Dakota wants to ensure a well-regulated system that will pass any federal government scrutiny.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Health is inspecting the site of a crude oil spill in McKenzie County. The department was notified Sunday, the day the spill was discovered. Officials say the spill resulted from equipment failure in the treater unit on a well pad. The well is owned by Burlington Resources Oil & Gas Company LP and located about 16 miles southeast of Watford City.

    Initial estimates indicate about 160 barrels of crude oil were released from the treater unit. Of that amount, an estimated 24 barrels affected agricultural land. The Health Department will continue to monitor the investigation.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division says an oil spill has been contained at an oil and gas well in northwestern North Dakota. Slawson Exploration Co. reports an estimated 252 barrels of oil was released, contained and recovered when a recycle line failed to the tanks Saturday. The spill happened about eight miles north of Noonan near the Canadian border. All of the leaked oil was contained within the tank diking. A recycle line runs oil back through the heater treater if the oil does not meet specifications for sale. A state inspector has been to the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.
