(Flathead Beacon) HELENA – The state Department of Health and Human Services says it has stopped issuing new medical marijuana cards.
Spokesman Jon Ebelt says his agency is complying with a new medical marijuana law that required the department to stop issuing the cards on May 14.
The new law gives the department powers to issue cards again using stricter patient criteria after June 1.
OK, so for the next week, nobody gets medical marijuana cards. Then starting June 1, hardly anybody will get medical marijuana cards. And all those current medical marijuana patients who cannot get their cards renewed will just stop using marijuana and go back to expensive, toxic, side-effect-laden pills, because surely they wouldn’t break the law now to continue living symptom-free like they had been legally for the past six years.
