We all see what happens when we leave Montana issues up to the 
federal government. They let the wolf population spiral out of 
control, now the state will put its foot down.

In 2004, Montana pushed back at big government and voted in medical 
marijuana. This is what our great state is all about.

Would we rather have it go back to being controlled by the cartel? 
The kids will still be using it, just like for the last 70 years.

If the law is repealed the drug lords will jump for joy. They can put 
any chemical compounds they want into their product - seems like 
terrorism to me.

People who use medical cannabis expect high quality organic medicine, 
grown right here in Montana - not Mexico. It is hard to believe that 
potentially 100,000 people out of a million Montanans might be a card 
holder, or that one in eight people on probation and parole hold 
cards too - seems pretty realistic to me.

So, Rep. Mike Milburn, let's get real. We overwhelmingly voted it in 
and we'd overwhelmingly do it again sir!
