The Initiative 148 was passed in Montana on the month of November 2004. This medical marijuana act of the state was supported by 62% of the total voters. The Montana Medical Marijuana Program permits patients suffering from the following conditions to use and cultivate cannabis:
- Cancer, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma
- A chronic health disorder that leads to one or more of the following condition:
- Wasting syndrome or cachexia
- Persistent acute pain
- Seizures including epilepsy

If you are diagnosed with any of the above mentioned ailments, you can get a doctor’s certification to apply for the medical cannabis ID card. The new applicants will need to submit a fee of $25. If you are only renewing, the fee would be $10. Make sure that you are submitting the renewal within 30 days of the date of expiry; if you fail to do so you’ll be treated as a new applicant.
