HELENA – Dozens of people visited the Montana State Capitol on Friday to take part in a statewide conference on the medical marijuana industry. Organizers said the Montana Cannabis Conference is intended as a free educational event for people involved in the industry and for those who simply want to learn more about it. “We wanted to give a one-day ability for folks to learn about farming and cultivation science and testing labs and medicine,” said state Rep. Ellie Hill Smith (D-Missoula) a board member of The Cannabis Way, Montana Chapter, a nonprofit group that sponsored the event. Those who attended the conference heard from marijuana providers, the laboratories that test marijuana, and state and local elected officials as well as the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services and Department of Agriculture, which regulate medical marijuana in the state. Hill Smith’s husband, Tyler Smith, the science director of a testing lab in Missoula, was one of the presenters. Another speaker was Bobby Devine, owner of Spark1, a dispensary with locations in Bozeman, Belgrade and Missoula.
