The state Senate has passed a bill to regulate medical marijuana.
The new regulations are designed to implement the initiated measure passed by voters in the November election.
"The main objective was to insure the voters are going to get medical marijuana," said Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner (R-Dickinson), the bill's main sponsor. "All parties involved were committed to doing the right thing. And I think we got it."
The state Health Department will administer the program.
