FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Two people who claimed that their prescriptions for medical marijuana from Washington State allowed them to have the drug in North Dakota have pleaded guilty.
The conditional pleas from Brian Kuruc and his wife, Rebecca Larson, both of Dickinson, means that they will be able to appeal to the 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.
Kuruc and Larson were sentenced to three days in jail, time that they've already served. They were also fined, placed on probation and ordered to turn over their marijuana prescription cards.ou
