Maine Legislative Committee hears testimony on pot dispensaries bill

The bill, which is in the Health and Human Services Committee, deals with several issues: expansion of medical conditions qualifying a person to get the medical marijuana, establishment of ID cards and dispensaries, and regulation of growing for personal medical use. 

“We simply ask that you respect the work that came before you and the will of the voters that was passed in both 1999 and last November,” said Jonathan Leavitt, executive director of the Maine Marijuana Policy Initiative, the group that put the expansion to the voters last year. “Make this happen and make it happen soon.”
