KALISPELL- Flathead County law enforcement officials are looking for more clarification when it comes to Montana's new medical marijuana law.
But, Undersheriff Jordan White says it will be easier to enforce the new law because the guidelines people have to follow to get their card are much more strict.
Flathead authorities told us they hope to have a better understanding of how to enforce the new law by next week and want to work alongside dispensary owners and caregivers.
"We want to be as responsible as they do with following it. Once we have a clear vision and direction, we hope that we can partner with the dispensaries and the growers to have a relationship that's going to beneficial for both of us," White said.
We talked with several Flathead dispensary owners who didn't want to go on camera, but they told us they want to make sure they are following all of the guidelines correctly.
The confusion stems from a Thursday ruling by a Helena District Judge which struck down some provisions of the new medical marijuana law on constitutional grounds.
