A second day of hearings is underway in Helena about the future of the new medical marijuana law in Montana.

Among those testifying on Tuesday is Dr. John Stowers of Great Falls, who says as soon as the new law takes effect on July 1st, he will stop recommending medical marijuana for patients because he doesn't want any black marks on his record from the Montana Board of Medical Examiners.

Under the new law, if a physician recommends more than 25 patients for medical marijuana, they will be under review by the Board.

Stowers testified that chronic pain is the main reason to recommend marijuana; he also said that he doesn't recommend it for people with mental health issues.

He said most of his patients are referrals and many of them are from the VA.

Stowers is an emergency physician at Benefis hospital in Great Falls.
