The Montana Supreme Court quickly dismissed a last-minute lawsuit that sought to remove recreational cannabis from the November ballot. The suit, filed by a group called Wrong for Montana, argued the taxation and regulation initiative violated the state’s constitution. “This was an easy decision for the Montana Supreme Court,” Dave Lewis, policy adviser to New Approach Montana, noted in a news release. “At best, this lawsuit was a frivolous long shot. At worst, it was an intentional effort to create confusion right before the election.” A recent Montana State University poll showed residents support recreational marijuana by a 49% to 39% margin, with 10% undecided. The University of Montana recently projected that an adult-use market will generate sales of more than $200 million.
