Medical marijuana initiative poised to make Montana ballot

cannabisWith signatures due at county courthouses, it appears highly likely a proposed Montana referendum to overturn the restrictive new state medical marijuana law will qualify for the November 2012 election. To make the ballot, a referendum needs the signatures of 5% of the voters in 34 of the 100 state House districts, or at least 24,337 signatures. Secretary of State Linda McCulloch's office has reported tabulating 19,973 qualified signatures so far for Initiative Referendum 124, the proposed medical marijuana measure. It has qualified in 31 House districts. The proposed initiative seeks to repeal the new law that bans for-profit marijuana operations and makes it more difficult to qualify to be a registered user.
