Medical cannabis supporters to hold fundraiser in effort to suspend implementation of SB423

Medical marijuana supporters are still fighting to suspend the implementation of Senate Bill 423.  Those in support of the referendum to suspend the law that reforms Montana’s medical cannabis law can meet at the Eagles tonight at 7 p.m. for a fundraiser. Voters and interested citizens can find out about the referendum and signature gathering process.  The initiative referendum petition that asks voters to suspend the implementation of the reform bill until the 2012 general election is currently being reviewed by Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock.

The Montana Cannabis Industry Association filed a lawsuit against the state, and the majority of the money made at the fundraiser tonight will go to toward the lawsuit.  “The fundraiser is open to everyone,” said Executive Director of the Montana Medical Growers Association Jim Gingery. “We’ll be taking donations with the hope of continuing to support our legal actions and the referendum as well.”  The law is fully implemented on July 1 when medical cannabis shops will have to close their doors.  Supporters of the new law say it’s a good solution to reign back the rampant side of the industry and still allow people a limited use to the drug for medical reasons.
