Medical Marijuana – Judge’S Ruling, And A Puzzling Raid


Recommended Posts

The Missoulian got a note from a reader today who was upset because so many medical marijuana dispensaries are closed and he felt as though there should be more coverage of that fact. Guess he’s missed the near-daily stories about the ongoing wrangling over Montana’s medical marijuana law.


There were a couple of interesting developments last week. A Flathead County judge became the second in the state to rule that caregiver-to-caregiver transfers of marijuana are illegal, the Associated Press reported:




Thursday’s ruling came in a lawsuit filed against Flathead County Attorney Ed Corrigan by the Medical Marijuana Growers Association. It could have implications for the criminal cases filed against two men after a February traffic stop in which officers found three pounds of marijuana.


In April, District Judge John Larson made a similar ruling in a Missoula County case, saying the marijuana law prohibits a caregiver from providing marijuana to anyone other than a qualifying patient who is registered with that caregiver.
