Montana. medical marijuana user numbers stabilizing
HELENA (AP) — The number of registered medical marijuana users in Montana is leveling out after last year's restrictive law passed by the Legislature caused a steep drop in cardholders and providers.
The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services reports there were 8,681 registered users in the state as of June 30, a number that is slightly down from 8,734 users the month before.
That represents a much smaller decline than the previous months leading back to June 2011, when there were more than 30,000 medical marijuana cardholders in Montana.
