Governor on marijuana storefronts: "July 1, they're out of business"

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 5:30 PM

Gov. Brian Schweitzer told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle editorial board this afternoon that he will let the medical marijuana reform bill become law. Schweitzer has been critical of the Legislature's work, but says he cannot let the current law continue.

"With the structure we have in place now, we have people using Montana law to smoke marijuana just to smoke it. That's what I believe," Schweitzer told the Chronicle.

The new bill allows caregivers to serve no more than three patients and bars people from accepting money for medical marijuana. Schweitzer said he expects more patients to grow marijuana, but that storefront businesses will be out of business by July 1.

The AP has filed a report, and the Chronicle has the full story from its interview.
