Medical marijuana case headed to ND Supreme Court

Court Watch Posted on

Two Dickinson residents who say that their prescriptions for medical marijuana from Washington state allowed them to have the drug in North Dakota have pleaded guilty to possession charges.

The conditional pleas from Brian Kuruc and his wife, Rebecca Larson, mean that they will be able to appeal to the state Supreme Court.

Kuruc and Larson were arrested in January at a Casselton motel. Their lawyers argued that the pot prescriptions should be a valid defense, even though North Dakota does not permit medicinal marijuana.

KFGO radio reports that Kuruc and Larson were sentenced Monday to the three days they've already served in jail. They also were fined a little less than $800 apiece, placed on probation for a year and ordered to turn over their marijuana prescription cards.
