From January 1, recreational use of marijuana now legal in Montana

From January 1, 2021, two bills, Initiative 190 and Initiative 118, became law in Montana legalizing recreational marijuana. Adult persons 21 and older can legally possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to 4 mature cannabis plants for personal use. 

Other provisions in the new law

The law contains separate provisions, including setting up a licensing system for commercial marijuana producers and retailers. It will be implemented later this year. Voters passed both initiatives with nearly 60 percent of the vote.

Carly Wolf is NORML State Policies Coordinator. Regarding this development, he said:

“Today is a great day for the people of Montana, who will no longer be subject to arrest, prosecution, and a criminal record for their personal use or possession of marijuana. The enactment of adult-use legalization in Montana is yet further evidence that this policy change enjoys widespread support from those across all geographic and political spectrums.”
