Yellowstone County resolution to re-vote on recreational marijuana fails

BILLINGS — Yellowstone County voters will not get a second chance to overturn the legalization of recreational marijuana sales.

A resolution voted on by the Yellowstone County Commissioners on Tuesday that would have put the issue of legalized recreational marijuana back on November’s ballot failed after a 1-1 tie. Board Chairman Don Jones voted in favor of Resolution 21-59, while commissioner John Ostlund voted against it. Commissioner Denis Pitman was absent.
