HELENA — Montana lawmakers in the House have rejected a bill requiring warning labels on medical marijuana.
The bill sponsored by Democratic Rep. Pat Noonan of Ramsay fell on a 59-40 vote.
The bill called for a label to read, "Warning: In some instances, marijuana may trigger acute psychosis or symptoms of schizophrenia and other mental illnesses."
Noonan tells the Billings Gazette in a story published Friday that he was asked to introduce the bill by the Montana Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
In a rare show on unanimity, the Hill County delgation — Reps. Wendy Warburton, R-Havre, Kris Hansen, R-Havre, and Tony Belcourt, D-Box Elder — voted yes.
Montana voters approved medical marijuana in a 2004 initiative.
