OK, I made that first part up.
Chuck Johnson of the Missoulian’s State Bureau, has this update on the actual news about the medical marijuana law:
HELENA – By a 63-37 margin, the Montana House voted Thursday to repeal the voter-passed 2004 law that legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes. …
The vote was nearly by party lines, with 62 Republicans and one Democrat voting for HB161, while 31 Democrats and six Republicans opposed it.
The bill’s sponsor, House Speaker Mike Milburn of Cascade, said the measure is necessary because Montana has experienced “an uncontrolled epidemic” with medical marijuana.
But Missoula Rep. Diane Sands said that “we tried Prohibition once and it didn’t work.”
She says medical marijuana isn’t going to go away.
