The MTCIA is receiving credible reports from supporters in the Miles City area that the State’s Drug Task Force is conducting warrantless “compliance checks” on providers in the area. Please be aware this is going on, and if you know providers in that area, please reach out and let them know.
Warrantless searches are currently illegal under SB-423. While the law itself allows for them, that provision of the law has been blocked in the MTCIA case by Judge Reynolds. If law enforcement does not have a warrant, you do not need to allow them to enter. There is no such thing as a compliance check so long as that injunction is in place.
If you are a provider in the Miles City area, be sure to know how to reach your lawyer in case you need legal advice. And be on the lookout!
