Nine Weeks Left to Gather Signatures
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Advocates for medical marijuana in Montana have just nine weeks to collect the 24,175 signatures needed to qualify an initiative for the November ballot. If passed, the measure would undo key provisions put in place by the 2011 Legislature - and upheld by the state Supreme Court earlier this year - that limit the use of medical marijuana. Voters in 2004 legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes.
