In the spring of 2010, a young woman drove across the country in search of a new life in the mountains – her dog in tow – exact destination unknown.
14 days and hundreds of pit stops later, the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountain Front near Glacier National Park stopped her in her tracks.
She sized up the local ski hill, ensured a solid fallback plan and decided this was home. Little did she know, spirited Montana would test her mettle in more ways than one. Her secret weapons? Intelligence, grit and heroism. Armed for all Montana had to offer,
this young woman mounted her draft horse and led a trip of tourists into the wilderness. With not a moment’s notice, a Grizzly bear
came barreling their direction, focused on a 7-year-old boy.
Hopeful to call its bluff and save the boy, she had no choice but to charge back at the bear. After three charging attempts, the young woman and her horse courageously warded off the bear, saving the boy. Just as the notoriety of her heroic act began to fade,
the young woman directed all of her attention to a new mission: end cannabis prohibition in Montana and
provide statewide access to safe, effective medicine.
True to the Wild West, Montana’s ruggedness would test her once again. Met with much opposition from lawmakers and three attempts to shut down the state’s medical program, the young woman charged back in the same victorious fashion of which she warded off the Grizzly. She wielded
her weapons and fought for a comfortable, safe medical cannabis community for all Montanans, with hopes to destigmatize
the plant altogether and eventually join the recreational cannabis market. Today, we celebrate the end of cannabis prohibition in Montana …and a successful standoff with that 750-pound Grizzly.
