Wheeler Center Panel: Montana's medical marijuana law too murky

September 21, 2011View for printing

Law enforcement officials and a criminal defense attorney said at a conference Tuesday they find the Montana medical marijuana law ambiguous and leaving a lot open to legal interpretation because of conflicting federal law.

Conference moderator Lee Banville, a University of Montana professor, asked the panelists if law enforcement had the tools "that help you sort of navigate this water between the complicated space between a federally illegal product and a state-sanctioned system."

If anything, the situation is getting "more foggy," and both law enforcement and his clients want clarity, Van de Wetering said in a speech at the Burton K. Wheeler Institute's conference on medical marijuana.
