MISSOULA — 2022 in Montana brings the legalization of recreational marijuana.
Montana just passed the initiative in November/2021 but that doesn’t intend you’ll be able to buy marijuana anyplace in the state.
Those in what are called green counties — where most residents voted in favor, will be permitted to have recreational sales.
But residents of red counties — where voters opted out of legal sales — will not have recreational sales, but still can make the switch if they put it up to a vote.
The Montana law allows for adults over the age of 21 to buy up to one ounce of marijuana.
There is a 20% state sales tax included to the purchase of recreational marijuana and some areas may have an additional tax. Also, people in Montana will be allowed to have two mature plants and two seedlings per household
