Jonathan Windy Boy and Rep. Tony Belcourt for their support of medical marijuana use both on and off the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation. Thank you both for your votes of "no" on HB161, the repeal of medical marijuana use in Montana. The Chippewa Cree Business Committee does not acknowledge Montana's Medical Marijuana Initiative 148, so the medical marijuana patients and caregivers of Rocky Boy must leave the reservation in order to use their choice of medicine, which is cannabis. Although the Tribal Council does not support the medical marijuana community in Rocky Boy, Windy Boy and Belcourt, both enrolled members of the Chippewa Cree Tribe, are the only politicians in Rocky Boy who support medical marijuana use. So if you are a medical marijuana patient or caregiver from the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation, the next time you see either Windy Boy or Belcourt thank them for supporting the medical marijuana community of Rocky Boy Indian Reservation and medical marijuana use in general.
