Marijuana Ballot Measure – I’m Confused Too

Honestly, the wording on this thing is impossible.  I consider myself to be fairly intelligent most of the time, and I’ve quit reading about this issue, because of the confusion.  Turns out I’m not the only one.

Sheriff Brian Gootkin has received questions from community members who are confused about Ballot Measure- Initiative Referendum Number 124.

Gootkin says the wording of this Ballot Measure is confusing.

He says the original law created an incredible burden on the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office. The 2011 legislature recognized and acknowledged these impacts and amended the law in Senate Bill 423.  Gootkin says this has had a very positive effect on the Office.

If you vote FOR Senate Bill 423, it leaves the law the way it currently is today.

If you vote AGAINST Senate Bill 423, it returns the law to its original form.

The actual ballot language as it appears:

[ ] FOR Senate Bill 423, a bill which repeals I-148 and enacts a new medical marijuana program.

[ ] AGAINST Senate Bill 423, a bill which repeals I-148 and enacts a new medical marijuana program. A vote against Senate Bill 243 will restore 1-148.
