BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Legislature has completed its session and adopted a budget that cuts state spending by nearly one-third. The cuts come amid declining tax revenue from depressed farm and energy prices.

During the 77-day session that ended Thursday evening, lawmakers approved more than 400 bills that will change North Dakotans' daily lives. Lawmakers also spent time on proposals that did not pass but were heavily debated.

One of the most complex bills of the session was a measure that regulates the state's voter-approved medical marijuana initiative.

The measure, called the North Dakota Compassionate Care Act, won 65 percent voter approval in November.

The voter-approved version allowed far more freedom for citizens to grow and smoke the plant. Lawmakers removed provisions for growing it.
