Montana NORML Newsletter – Legislation, Voting, Women’s Marijuana Movement and the News

October 1st, 2010 by Montana NORML Newsletter Leave a reply »


I know we here in Montana sometimes express disdain, even disgust, with all things California. However, it cannot be denied that the state has been on the forefront of numerous social issues, and now, ending marijuana prohibition is on California’s agenda.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve called for Montanans to donate to help California activists pass their “Proposition 19“.  The idea is, if California can end marijuana prohibition in their state, other states will likely follow, eventually. I predict Montana could do it in just a few years. Maybe, if you and I really work at it, sooner than that.

The result of our fundraising campaign was encouraging. Together, we raised about $500 for the campaign (click through to learn more and donate directly). I can only imagine the response when we’re working (soon) to make marijuana legal for all Montana adults!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Montana legislative candidates are trying to get elected, and some of them will soon be trying to change our marijuana laws.  Some of them want to eliminate medical marijuana altogether while others want to end prohibition entirely.

How do you know who’s who? Consult this site: Montana Legislative Candidates’ Positions on Marijuana

The site is a partnership between Montana NORML, the Montana Medical Growers’ Association, and other organizations that work to reform cannabis laws in Montana. It’s your go-to tool for guidance on how to vote for marijuana law reform. Check back often, because we’re updating it with new info frequently.

Today, we added info for two Flathead districts (HD 3 and HD 4), and one Missoula district (HD 96). Click the map to figure out your district!

Important Alert!
