Several bills that would change the medical marijuana act in Montana are either sitting on Governor Brian Schweitzer's desk, or moving toward it. One of them is a repeal bill, and others try to regulate the industry. He can sign any of them, veto them outright, or send an amendatory veto back to the legislature. Schweitzer says that he has not come to a decision on any of the bills, and he says he is waiting to see what exactly makes it to his desk. Schweitzer believes some patients need medical marijuana.

The Governor has 10 days to take action after a bill arrives on his desk.
