just legalize it already


Medical marijuana debate coming to Montana.

by KAJ18:

The Montana Legislature will hear the first of several medical marijuana bills on Friday.

House Bill 68 would change the current law, passed by voters in 2004 and people on both sides of the medical marijuana debate say the current Montana law needs changing.

“It’s been up to us as caregivers for the most part to self regulate ourselves,” said Mark Higgins, owner of medical marijuana store, Montannabis, Inc. In Billings. “Not everybody is good at that. And I think that’s where a lot of the problems came in at.”

“They (the bill’s sponsors) want to see two doctors sign off on those patients as this is a valid use for that,” Higgins said. “I think that’s responsible.”

Brady supports repealing Montana’s Medical Marijuana law and says it can not be rewritten. Higgins agrees there are loopholes and the law makes it difficult for law enforcement…but he prefers rewriting to repealing the law. Both see their view as the best solution.

The Montana Board of Medical Examiners believes the bill, which is intended to restrict who can get medical marijuana, contains wording that could end up having the opposite result and increase eligibility.

House Bill 68 is sponsored by Democrat Representative Diane Sands of Missoula on behalf of the Legislature’s Children, Families, Health and Human Services interim committee.”
