Montana State Legislature

SB 423 Monitoring: Montana Marijuana Act

The 2011 Legislature repealed Montana's Medical Marijuana Act with passage of Senate Bill 423, which replaced the voter-passed initiative with new requirements for the cultivation, manufacture, and possession of marijuana for use by people with debilitating medical conditions. SB 423 also required the Children, Families, Health, and Human Services Interim Committee to monitor the new law and to draft legislation if members decide changes to the law are needed.

To fulfill its monitoring responsibility, the committee received regular updates on the number of people registered to grow, produce, and use marijuana for debilitating medical conditions. The committee also received periodic updates on the status of items related to SB 423, including the legal challenge that was filed after the law's passage, and received reports of complaints filed with the Board of Medical Examiners about physician practices related to medical marijuana.
