Durg charges prompt president of Montana Cannabis Industry Association to step down

The president of Montana Cannabis Industry Association, the group suing the state over the new medical marijuana law, has stepped down because of past drug charges.

A MCIA spokesperson told Montana’s News Station that Nathan Pierce turned in his resignation last Friday. The spokesperson says Pierce told them his drug charges were dismissed, but when the group found out they were not, he was asked to step down.

The Montana Cannabis Industry Association wants to sue the state to stop Senate Bill 423, better known as the Montana Marijuana Act. The group said it violates constitutional and statutory issues and doesn’t follow the nature of the voter Initiative 148.
