Marijuana advocate may travel while facing charges

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A medical marijuana advocate facing criminal charges in Missoula will be allowed to travel to Helena to lobby state lawmakers.

Jason Christ faces two counts of felony intimidation stemming from what police say was a bomb threat against a Verizon store on Aug. 18.

The Missoulian reports that Justice of the Peace John Odlin on Friday allowed Christ to remain free on his own recognizance, and also said Christ could travel within the state.

Employees at the Verizon store in Missoula told police Christ said he'd bomb the store if he didn't get to talk to a manager about canceling his service or getting his money back.

Police say employees also recorded Christ making an obscenity-laced phone call in which he said he'd break items in the store and knock over computers.

The felony charges each have a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
