MISSOULA — Montana has officially joined 17 other states where recreational, adult-use cannabis is legal.

A number of counties can sell marijuana as of Saturday with some of the “green counties” including Ravalli, Mineral, and Missoula.

But with the legalization of adult-use marijuana, comes a lot of questions.

We stopped by a Missoula dispensary earlier this week as they prepared for Jan. 1.

Spark1 has waited patiently for four years at its post on Broadway and Adams rooting for a recreational marijuana bill to come onto the scene.

“This is a good thing for the community and for the state,” Spark1 owner Marc Lax said.

Thanks to the voters’ approval of Initiative 190 back in November, Spark1 got its wish and as of Jan. 1, limited amounts of marijuana for adults over the age of 21 is legal.

Before Saturday, Spark1’s Montana-made cannabis only catered to medical cardholders but now, the reach is greater — stretching far beyond even county lines.

“Anybody over 21 can come in, regardless of what state you live in. If you’re 21 and have a valid ID, you can come make a purchase up to an ounce a day,” Lax explained.
