New Laws To Go Into Effect

Posted: Updated:

More than 200 Montana laws, passed earlier this year, will go into place this Tuesday.

A list of new laws taking effect this week includes testing drivers for marijuana impairment, and new permits to allow Montanans to recover road kill.

Later this month, the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission will meet to finalize new rules to allow people to retrieve road kill for meat.

Attorney General Tim Fox is commending several new laws aimed at cracking down on sex offenders and impaired driving.

One of those new laws aims to establish a way to test drivers suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana. It establishes an allowable threshold in the blood of THC.
