The Montana legislature is really an amateur organization when it comes to writing bulletproof legislation. Just look at the current assisted suicide situation here.

All so they can control and regulate something that is none of their business in the first place.

I don't suppose just leaving people the hell alone ever enters the mind of a "legislator." When your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Has anyone besides me noticed that those most concerned with Montana's laws don't live there? Just curious.

Looks like the recent prohibition on for-profit dispensaries might be overturned by the judiciary.

I'm sure the new DUI laws starting July 1st have just as many holes in it, too. The attorney's will make a good buck on the interpretation part with their clients and the courts, and the battle will go on. The average person is not suppose to understand the law.

Missoula is just getting started with the carnage. I made a lot of money off drunk drivers back when I lived in Phoenix as a victim. I'm no saint either but It paid off a few new cars for me. If you don't die the court gives you everything you want,... everything. It's just us transplants that know what it's like to live in a place where you get hit hard on average three times a year. I've seen a lot of injured and dead bodies on the Black Canyon Highway. I once had to go into on-coming traffic on a 6 lane highway for a half-mile to avoid one of these crazy son's a @&!*%es! Just like in the movies.

Let the good times roll! A judge has essentially rolled back the legislature's recent restrictions against marijuana.

As any lawyer will tell you, there's no such thing as bulletproof legislation. The shorter and simpler you keep it, typically the more effective.

That said, as a physician I have major problems with the legalization of marijuana and have further problems legalizing a substance that is banned by federal law.

Most of the jacklegs using this crap have no medical condition warranting its prescription, which further means I have issues with the physicians prescribing it.

I'm but a single voice, but I'm also a medical provider who will end up dealing with the consequences.

What sort of consequences would you expect from legalization?
