North Dakota has chosen a Pennsylvania-based company to perform laboratory testing for the state’s medical cannabis program.

The Health Department says Keystone State Testing is expected to set up shop in Fargo and will operate as Dakota State Testing.

State Medical Marijuana Director Jason Wahl says the lab will ensure medical cannabis dispensed in North Dakota is safe.

North Dakota law allows the use of medical cannabis for 17 medical conditions, along with terminal illnesses. Voters in November 2016 approved Initiated Statutory Measure 5 by nearly 64 percent to allow medical marijuana, and the drug is expected to be available to patients late this year.

North Dakota is registering medical marijuana manufacturing facilities in Bismarck and Fargo, and earlier selected a Florida-based company to implement a system to monitor the drug program. Application periods will soon be held for dispensaries, patients, and caregivers.
