Last Friday Maine Governor Paul LePage (R) signed LD 1296 into law. The legislation expands privacy protection for the state’s medical marijuana patients.

The new law eliminates the requirements for doctors to disclose information about medical cannabis patients to the state and for patients to be registered with the state to receive legal protection. It also requires law enforcement to return property seized from lawful patients within 7 days, and limits the ability of officials to seize cannabis from patients.
