Senate Bill would revamp Montana’s medical marijuana program

BILLINGS – The current legislative session has closed and bills have made their way to the governor’s desk to be signed;

One of those bills is Senate Bill 265 which revamps Montana’s medical marijuana program.

When Montana’s medical marijuana program first debuted in 2004 it, unfortunately, had some difficulties

“When this program was initially created in 2004, [it was] kind of just the wild west. Everybody was advertising where they wanted to, doing whatever they wanted to with no oversight,” said Medicine Creek owner Ryder Gerberding.

With the passing of Senate Bill 333 back in 2017 — and the current passing of bill 265 –there have been a lot of revisions to the program that tackle different elements.
