HELENA, Mont.— A District Court hearing is scheduled to begin in Helena in an effort by the Montana Cannabis Industry Association to stop implementation of the state’s new and more restrictive medical marijuana law. Lee Newspapers of Montana reports the two-day hearing is set to start Monday morning before District Judge James Reynolds.
A law passed by the 2011 Legislature puts new restrictions on who can obtain medical marijuana cards, limits caregivers to growing the drug for up to three people and does not allow them to charge their customers. As of May 31, Montana had about 30,500 people with medical marijuana cards, up from about 4,000 in September 2009. More than 80 percent of the cardholders claimed “chronic pain” or “severe or chronic pain or muscle spasms.”
