Montana medical marijuana advocates push final bill aimed at 2011 law

HELENA – Medical marijuana advocates are making a final try this legislative session to amend the 2011 law that imposed tighter restrictions on what was then a booming industry here.
Sen. Dave Wanzenried, D-Missoula, recently introduced Senate Bill 377 for a group called Montana Association for Rights.
No hearing date has been set yet. The bill has been assigned to the Senate Business and Labor Committee, but he hopes to get it moved to the Judiciary Committee.
SB377 may face long odds for passage because it expands the 2011 medical marijuana law in some ways.
In addition, the 2013 Legislature so far has opposed changing the current law, killing all six other bills that sought to amend it.
The 2011 law was intended to make it harder for people to get medical marijuana cards and squeeze the profits out of the industry.
In June 2011, there were 30,000 medical marijuana carders in Montana and about 4,400 providers registered with the state to supply pot to cardholders. As of last month, the numbers had plummeted to about 7,500 cardholders and 300 providers.

When Sanchez was caught, he was allegedly found with two Tupperware bowls containing marijuana.
