In October 2020, prior to the voting on ballot initiative I-190, a campaign practices complaint was filed against the North Fund with the Commissioner of Political Practices of the State of Montana.
New Approach Montana, the group promoting the passage of this ballot issue, was plied with funds from the North Fund. Their purpose? To convince the voters of Montana that the legalization of recreational marijuana was good for our state and good for our citizens. The question? Why would an out-of-state fund have such an interest in Montana?
