Two competing plans to ask Montana voters to legalize and tax recreational marijuana are underway in the state.  A group called MontanaCan is the latest initiative sponsor calling for a change in the state’s policies for marijuana.

A statewide campaign working to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana submitted two proposed 2020 ballot initiatives for state review Monday.

A Denver jury has ruled in favor of a marijuana grow operation sued for potentially hurting the property values of a nearby ranch — marking a blow for those seeking to stop the spread of legal pot.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came out in cautious support of medical marijuana last month but now says the legislature should decide how it’s legalized in Utah, not the voters in a citizen’s initiative this November.

This month, Colorado became the first state in the nation to allow school nurses to administer medical marijuana to students. But not all nurses may be on board.
