Montana Attorney General appeals medical marijuana payment, advertising


The Montana Attorney General filed an appeal Wednesday to remove certain provisions made in the state's medical marijuana law.

Reynolds ruled that providers, or growers, of medical marijuana could advertise, providers could receive payment, and a doctor could prescribe to more than 25 patients.

As far as college-rooted practical jokes go, the on-campus digital traffic sign reading "SMOKE WEED EVERYDAY" at the University of Montana is right up there with the time a Los Angeles art student made the Hollywood sign read "Hollyweed." If you drove by the corner of Sixth and Arthur streets in Missoula on Monday morning you might have seen the prankster's handiwork, undoubtedly a shout-out to one of Dr. Dre's most memorable kiss-offs.
