Medical Pot Group Raises $50k To Hire Top Attorney

Montana Cannabis Industry Association raises funds to lawyer up to fight state government

The new Montana Cannabis Industry Association said Monday that it raised $50,000 in five days to hire prominent attorney James Goetz of Bozeman to challenge the recently passed medical marijuana law if Gov. Brian Schweitzer lets it become law on Friday. Schweitzer has said he will let Senate Bill 423, passed by the 2011 Legislature, become law without his signature. “We raised it with phone calls, electronic networking and community meetings,” said Kate Cholewa, a board member of the Cannabis Industry Association. “People care deeply about this.” She said the association is overwhelmed by the support it is receiving to fight the bill. “It’s about more than marijuana now,” Cholewa said. “It’s about democracy, the Constitution, health care and the fulfillment of compassionate voter intent. This is big.”
