The Montana House passed a bill to revise medical marijuana laws to eliminate a requirement that patients have only one provider, which could potentially boost sales by allowing easier access to medical cannabis.

The Senate must approve amendments made in the House.

The bill would allow patients to buy MMJ from any provider with a limit of 5 ounces per month and 1 ounce per day.

It also sets licensing fees on the amount of cannabis each cultivator decides to grow, with fees ranging from $500 to $20,000 a year.
