Maine growers from a group

Medical marijuana growers in the state of Maine are forming a trade group to help shape future policies and to protect their rights.  A formal announcement of the new group will be made at a news conference tomorrow in Augusta.  That came from a notice by e-mail from Jonathan Leavitt of the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine.

Maine allows an unknown number of medical marijuana caregivers to grow and sell marijuana to eligible patients.  A maximum of five patients per caregiver is allowed under the state’s decade-old medical marijuana law.  A new law has been put in place for Maine’s first storefront medical marijuana dispensary.  Caregivers can continue to serve patients as long as they register by Jan 1st.

Leavitt said in his email, “Caregivers provide an essential service for people throughout Maine who get relief from server pain and suffering through medical marijuana.  Patients get to have a personal relationship with the people who grow their medicine, and the lack of administrative overhead means they can get their marijuana at a better price.”

I agree with him completely.
