News » Great Falls, Montana Housing Authority Boots MMJ Patient Out
October 13, 2010 by Aaron Turpen
The Public Housing Authority in Great Falls, Montana has kicked medical marijuana patient Steve Vandershelden out of his home for “using drugs in public housing.”
Vandershelden got his MMJ card last year (June 2009) and appeared in a newspaper article showing his card in August. He then received an eviction notice from the Great Falls Public Housing Authority for committing a “drug crime.”
The Housing Authority says it’s merely following the law. The Public Housing Authority is federally funded and must abide by a drug-free policy. Something Californians in public housing should take note of and that Proposition 19 won’t change.
