    The Lowdown on Billings Cannabis Laws

The state first approved medical usage in the Montana Medical Marijuna Act, with updates added later that year and again in 2017. On January 1, 2021, recreational cannabis was made legal with the passage of the Marijuana Legalization and Tax Initiative passed the previous November.
