Public Lands Coalition for 118 & 190This November, voters will have the opportunity to approve two ballot measures to legalize and tax the adult (21+) use of recreational marijuana in Montana. These measures present a rare opportunity to significantly boost conservation efforts in Montana, including protecting water quality, preserving wildlife habitat, bolstering state parks, and maintaining local parks and trails throughout the state.
About CI-118 and I-190
I-190 is a statutory initiative that legalizes, regulates, and taxes marijuana in Montana. This is how we are going to earn millions of dollars for Montana’s public lands.
CI-118 amends the Montana Constitution to make the minimum age for consumption and purchase of marijuana 21.

Legalization is popular and likely to pass in Montana very soon. These ballot measures are our chance to secure public lands funding with the revenue.
Legalization would provide more than $18 million per year to benefit our public lands.
These additional funds would help to address the state’s backlog of repairs to campgrounds, trails, wildlife habitat - opening access and increasing maintenance on our public lands.
Boosting funds to our public lands boosts our quality of life; this is a win-win for the conservation community and all Montanans.
