Since the new law has taken affect in Maine it seems to be harder to get approval from doctors to use medical marijuana. As a cancer patient this author knows first hand the benefits of using marijuana for the treatment of chemotherapy side effects, but when I went to my doctor to renew my prescription after the first of the year I was rudely told that the corporate doctors office that he works for has barred the recommendation of medical marijuana across the board regardless of circumstances.

They chose to put themselves before their patient’s needs.
This week a milestone was met in the state of Maine regarding the recently approved Maine Medical Marijuana Act. On November 3, 2009 Maine voters approved Question 5, which enacted the citizen-initiated bill, “An act to establish the Maine Medical Marijuana Act” (LD 975, IB 2). Since then there has been much speculation, controversy and anticipation amongst the Maine medical marijuana community to where dispensaries will be located and who will be allowed to run them.
