While North Dakota is seeking a new medical marijuana law, Montana is tweaking their existing medical marijuana law. The North Dakota Compassionate Care Act, or Initiated Statutory Measure 5, will set up a system of nonprofit “compassion centers” to make medical cannabis available to people with a long list of qualifying conditions. It will also allow patients to grow up to 8 plants if they live more than 40 miles from a “compassion center.” The polling data from 2014 had support for medical marijuana at 47%, with 41% opposed. “I-182 renames the Montana Marijuana Act to the Montana Medical Marijuana Act and amends the Act. I-182 allows a single treating physician to certify medical marijuana for a patient diagnosed with chronic pain and includes post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a “debilitating medical condition” for which a physician may certify medical marijuana.” There doesn't appear to be any recent polling on the initiative's prospects.
