Division Overview

The Cannabis Control Division (CCD) is a new division within the Department of Revenue. The objective of the CCD is to develop a well-regulated program so that individuals with a debilitating medical condition can safely access the medicine they need. House Bill 701 (HB 701) was passed by the 2021 Montana Legislature and signed into law on 5/18/2021. HB701 amends both the recreational marijuana initiative I-190 and the Montana Medical Marijuana Act. CCD administers both programs as the "Montana Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act" under Title 16, chapter 12.
