AP: Multiple Legalized Pot Proposals Submitted to Montana Secretary of State 

Montana is the latest state that is mulling proposals to put the issue of recreational marijuana before voters. No fewer than three separate proposed initiatives have been submitted to the Montana Secretary of State's Office for review.

The Associated Press reports that the latest comes from Anthony Varriano, a reporter for the bi-weekly newspaper Glendive Ranger Review in eastern Montana's Dawson County. Varriano's proposed initiative would amend the Montana Constitution to allow recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older and the first $40 million in annual revenue to go toward public schools. Varriano needs a minimum of 50,000 signatures to be placed on the 2016 election ballot, according to the AP.

Montana already allows legalized medical marijuana following a 2004 voter-approved measure. To date, the AP reports that 11,717 Montanans are enrolled in that state's medical marijuana program.
