LEGISLATURE FAILS US AGAIN

March 28, 2015

Dear Members:

For the third consecutive session, the Montana Legislature has killed the medical cannabis industry’s attempt at fixing the convoluted, schizophrenic marijuana law that was inflicted on us by the 2011 Legislature. SB 406, sponsored by State Senator Robyn Driscoll, D-Billings, was killed on a party line vote on Thursday, March 26.

That action forces the issue into the appeal process before the Montana Supreme Court. You will recall that the last time this issue was heard by the Montana Supreme Court, the justices revealed their hostility towards our industry in their opinion written by Justice Wheat.

Our Board is currently exploring available options before moving into an actionable phase. Please stand by for further information.

 

Yours in Solidarity,

Mort Reid

President, MTCIA
