Marijuana groups sues political practices commissioner

Associated Press

HELENA -- A national organization advocating legalization of marijuana for medical purposes has sued the state political practices commissioner for throwing out allegations that the national drug czar's office broke Montana campaign finance laws.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday in state District Court here, the Marijuana Policy Project said Commissioner Gordon Higgins failed to investigate the group's claim that the federal agency acted illegally in not reporting money spent last year to fight a Montana ballot measure permitting medical use of marijuana.

The suit asks for a court ruling that Higgins was wrong to dismiss the complaint and for an order requiring him to conduct an investigation into the accusation against the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.
