Anaconda's Medical Marijuana Task Force got some valuable information Monday to help shape the recommendations they are set to come up with before a six-month ban on medical marijuana shops and caregiving expires in November.
On Monday the task force heard from Mark Long of the Montana Department of Justice. He broke down the Montana laws and codes surrounding medical marijuana. Long informed the group that there is no limit to how many patients a caregiver can have. He also mentioned that a caregiver can be a convicted felon, but they just can't have any felony drug charges. Also, he said there is no age limit to patients. The youngest patient in Montana is 2 years old, but caregivers must be over 18, according to Long.
At the next meeting the task force plans to revisit the topic of dispensaries and where caregiving will be allowed.
