Medical marijuana bill headed to governor

The Senate and House on Wednesday gave final approval to a bill to repeal Montana’s medical marijuana and put in its place strict new regulations aimed at limiting the number of people eligible and taking all profits out of what’s been a booming business.

Senate Bill 423, by Sen. Jeff Essmann, R-Billings, now goes to Gov. Brian Schweitzer for his signature or veto. If he gets the bill before the Legislature adjourns, Schweitzer will have a chance to suggest changes through an amendatory veto. He has said he wants to propose some changes.

The Senate gave its final approval to SB423 by a 33-17 vote, and the House approved it, 70-30.

By 62 percent to 38 percent, Montana voters approved a 2004 ballot initiative to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
