Dispensaries, Deliveries & Doctors in Helena, MT

As the state capital of Montana, Helena was a booming gold camp during the Montana Gold Rush. The city’s past due to the gold rush led to Helena becoming a wealthy city with 50 different millionaires inhabiting the area by 1888. This concentration of wealth helped lend to the city’s prominent and elaborate Victorian Architecture. In town, be sure to visit the Cathedral of Saint Helena, a grand historic neo-gothic church, to catch just a glimpse of some of the elaborate works of art and architecture. To learn a bit more about the history of Helena and view how the wealthy used to live, tour the original Governor’s Mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. For a more modern time, visit the Holter Museum of Art which features rotating exhibits of northwestern contemporary artists.

Finish off your night at Brewhouse Pub & Grille for a friendly atmosphere, great food and an extensive beer collection. 

As of January 1, 2021, possessing less than one ounce of marijuana in Helena is legal and the state will soon have a recreational market set up. However, before recreational sales can begin there are still several questions that the state of Montana still needs to answer.  First, we do know that allowing with possession of 1 ounce of flower, you can also legally possess up to 8 grams of concentrates. Additionally, people can legally grow marijuana at home. I-190 also creates a timeline for recreational sales, but it is going to be a long wait. The law states that Montana doesn’t have to start accepting licenses until October 2021, meaning that recreational adult users won’t likely see the inside of a dispensary until 2022. Finally, the last provision that I-190 sets is the marijuana tax rate at 20%. This allows the state to use 10.5% of the funds in the state general fund and local governments that allow marijuana sales the additional 9.5% for public programs.
