Marijuana Ban Proposed

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - A billings car-dealership owner proposes a ballot measure to ban marijuana in Montana.

Steve Zabawa's proposal would change state law to say, "any Schedule 1 drug in the Federal-Controlled Substances Act may not be legally possessed, received, transferred, manufactured, cultivated, trafficked, transported or used in the state.

Nearly 8,300 medical marijuana users are registered in the state. Zabawa said if the federal government considers it an illegal drug, it should be illegal in the state. But, federal authorities have not interfered in Washington state and Colorado, where voters legalized recreational use of the drug.
