Medical Marijuana in Montana

Pot Laws in Montana

While laws surrounding marijuana use, possession and sales non-criminal acts are not as light as in other states, Montana does allow for misdemeanor charges for possession of up to 60 grams, which is a bit over 2 ounces, for the first offense only. The sentencing involved at this level is up to six months in jail and fines between $100 and $500.

Growing less than one (1) pound of marijuana or less brings a felony charge and up to 10 years in prison, along with a fine of $50,000. More than a pound (or 30 plants) is also a felony, with sentencing of at least 2 years (and up to life) in prison and the same fine of $50,000. Note: In 2006, an initiative in Missoula County was passed that enforcement of laws regarding cannabis use be made the lowest of priorities for law enforcement agencies.
