NORML.ORG – Montana: Governor To Decide Measure To Severely Restrict State’s Six-Year-Old Medical Marijuana Law

Helena, MT: Lawmakers this week approved legislation, Senate Bill 423, which seeks to restrict the number of patients who may qualify to use medical cannabis legally under state’s voter-approved law . The proposal would require the Board of Medical Examiners to review the practices of any physician who recommends cannabis to more than 15 patients in a twelve-month period, and it would limit patients’ ability to use cannabis for chronic pain conditions. Provisions in the measure also curtail practices regarding the cultivation and distribution of cannabis to qualified patients. Proponents of the measure say that they intend to reduce the number of existing medical marijuana patients by over 90 percent. Senate Bill 423 now goes before Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who in April vetoed legislation that sought to repeal the state’s six-year-old medical marijuana law. Governor Schweitzer has the legal option to veto, approve, or amend the legislation.
