About Medical Marijuana in Montana

Montana may very well be legalizing recreational marijuana use in addition to their medicinal cannabis program if voters check the ballot box yes in the November 2020 General Election. Based on the 50,000 signatures collected during the petition process, chances are that more yes boxes will be checked than no. If passed, the Big Sky Country State has big plans for the tax revenue that the recreational cannabis market will produce over the next five years, reports the Independent Record.

“Of the tax revenue that would be generated by the measure, 10.5% would go to the state’s general fund, while the remainder would fund conservation programs, substance abuse treatment, veterans’ services, health care costs, and localities where marijuana is sold,” reports the Montana news source.

The ballot initiative would not only legalize cannabis for recreational use, but it could also possibly redeem residents charged with any prior cannabis-related crimes. According to the Independent Record, “The measure would permit people currently serving a sentence for illegal possession, sale, or use of marijuana to apply for resentencing.” 

Montana’s medical cannabis program covers a list of qualifying conditions that make residents eligible for the program. Under the directive of Gov. Steve Bullock, physician consultations may be conducted via telemedicine during COVID-19 for both new patients and renewals and curbside delivery is allowed.

Qualifying Conditions and Cost

Montana’s medical cannabis program dates back to 2004 when voters initiated the ballot measure, with 62% approving it. Since then, Montana has come up with a long list of qualifying conditions that include: 

Additionally, the state deems that a chronic medical condition or its treatment that causes other symptoms or disorders also makes patients eligible for the medical cannabis program. Those additional conditions and symptoms include: 

Lastly, peripheral neuropathy, central nervous system disorder, PTSD, or terminal illness also qualify patients for the program. Along with having a condition, any Montana resident applying for a medical cannabis card must prove their residency with a valid driver’s license or state identification card. A Montana medical cannabis card’s cost is $30, and it costs $10 to replace or update provider information. 

Medical Cannabis Program Application Process in Montana

The Montana medical cannabis program application is straight forward. All prospective patients must be at least 18-years-old and have at least one of the qualifying medcial conditions. Additionally, applicants must show proof of residency with a valid copy of a state driver’s license or identification card, or Montana Tribal card. After proving their residence, a patient must provide the state with a signed physician statement for a debilitating condition and the medical provider’s name and address. If the government denies a patient’s application, Montana gives residents a second chance to apply.  All applications for annual renewal must be submitted within 30 days of the medical cannabis card expiration date. 

Caregivers in Montana

Like a patient, a caregiver must prove they are a Montana resident, supplying a valid driver’s license or state identification card with their current address.  Additionally, a caregiver must not have a felony conviction to legally assist a patient.  

Possession and Cultivation of Medical Marijuana in Montana

Montana updated its possession and cultivation laws in 2017, allowing a registered card holder to have 1 ounce of cannabis at a time. Additionally, patients who do not list a provider may cultivate up to four flowering plants and have 12 seedlings. If a cardholder does list a medical cannabis provider, they cannot cultivate their own cannabis.
