Today people came from all over the state for the opening of the very first medical marijuana dispensary right here in Fargo.

Buyers who turned out for the opening of The Botanist medical marijuana dispensary say they're relieved they can finally get the drug.

Valley news live got a chance to speak with the very first customer to ever legally buy medical marijuana in the state.

"It's nice that I'll finally be able to get relief. I broke my back in a car accident and I have quite extensive nerve damage in my legs. It'd be nice to have an alternative source for the pain and not have to take any opioids," says Justyse Dahl, first dispensary customer.

It took the state more than two years to build up a regulatory structure, after voters approved the drug in 2016.
