Medical marijuana advocates accuse state Attorney General Tim Fox of defying the will of voters.
Montanans voted to legalize medical marijuana in 2004. In 2011 state lawmakers passed a bill to tighten rules governing the sale of the drug.
Fox's office this week filed a brief with the state Supreme Court to reverse District Judge James Reynolds' ruling that blocks parts of that more-strict medical marijuana law.
Chris Fanuzzi opposes the move. He's a medical cannabis provider who owns "Lionheart Caregiving" dispensaries in Bozeman, Missoula, Butte and Helena.
"Ultimately it's not what the people want. I feel that if it does go to the Supreme Court, hopefully the judges will rule that this is a decision made that was in the best interest of Montana and the best interest of the country as well."
The Montana Attorney General's office declined comment on the matter today.
