Medical Marijuana in Montana

In 2004, Montana voters approved I-14, creating a medical marijuana program for patients with debilitating medical conditions.  Senate Bill 423, passed by the 2012 Legislature, repeals I-148 and enacts a new medical marijuana program, which includes:  permitting patients to grow marijuana or designate a provider, limiting each marijuana provider to three patients; prohibiting marijuana providers from accepting anything of value in exchange for services or products; granting local governments authority to regulate marijuana providers; establishing specific standards for demonstrating chronic pain; and reviewing the practices of doctors who certify marijuana use for 25 or more patients in a 12-month period.
