Mr. Anderson:
The Montana Department of Corrections does not have information related to “citations.” We track felony drug convictions, but our database has no record of the specific drug associated with that conviction.

Nor does DOC have local law enforcement statistics related to citations and misdemeanor offenses. It is possible that the Montana Board of Crime Control may have some information from the local level. The only other option would be to contact each local jurisdiction.
