Legislation

New bill is out… that definitely will effect us.

LD 1527 "An Act To Ensure Safety, Quality and Transparency in the Medical Marijuana Market and To Ensure Sufficient Funding for Regulation and Enforcement with Respect to the Retail Marijuana Industry"

This bill amends the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Act in the following ways.

1. It imposes mandatory testing, labeling and record-keeping requirements on registered dispensaries. It provides that registered dispensaries are subject to inspection by the local fire department, building inspector or code enforcement officer to confirm that no health or safety concerns are present and that local health and safety ordinances apply to registered dispensaries.

2. It imposes mandatory testing, labeling and record-keeping requirements on registered primary caregivers. It provides that registered primary caregivers are subject to inspection by the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure regulatory compliance. It provides that registered primary caregivers are subject to inspection by the local fire department, building inspector or code enforcement officer to confirm that no health or safety concerns are present and that local health and safety ordinances apply to registered primary caregivers.

3. It provides that mandatory testing of medical marijuana and medical marijuana products may be conducted by testing facilities licensed under either the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Act or the Marijuana Legalization Act.

4. It imposes a special tax of 20% on retail marijuana and retail marijuana products sold by retail marijuana stores and retail marijuana social clubs to ensure that the tax revenue generated is sufficient to fund enforcement and regulation with respect to the retail marijuana industry. It also provides that in addition to this special tax, retail marijuana and retail marijuana products are subject to the state sales tax.

UPDATE on Work Session and Also LD1135

Yesterday, the Committee on Health and Human Services divided along party lines on LD 764 "An Act To Prohibit the Exclusion of a Patient from Eligibility for an Organ Transplant Based on Medical Marijuana Use" to produce a Majority who voted that the Bill 'Ought Not Pass'. As you know, current Medical Recommendation holders in the state may donate organs, but not receive them. We would like to urge you to contact your local Rep (See Link Below), and urge them to vote for the 'Minority Report' on LD 764 when it is voted on in the House. This will likely be early next week, so that Time Is Critical. The Minority Report ammends the language to read:

4905A Discrimination prohibited.

(2) For the purposes of medical care, including organ transplants, a registered qualifying patient's authorized use of marijuana in accordance with this chapter shall be considered the equivalent of the authorized use of any other medication used at the direction of a physician, and shall not constitute the use of an illicit substance or otherwise disqualify a qualifying patient from needed medical care.

Also, LD 1135

"An Act to Strengthen the Efficacy of the Medical Marijuana Laws"

LD 1135 is currently tabled in the House awaiting reference to committee. The original committee suggested was the 'Marijuana Legalization Implementation Committee'. As this Bill restructures several important facets of Maine's Medical Marijuana Program, it is Critical that this bill be assigned to the 'DHHS Committee' and worked by seasoned lawmakers who understand the challenges of the Medical Program. Please contact your Representatives and urge them to have the House assign LD 1135 to the DHHS Committee. Here are some points that you can refer to. Thank you for your time!

LD 855 "An Act to protect Children from Edible Cannabis Products"
LD 1064 "An Act to Require that Health Insurance Policies cover Medical marijuana"
LD 1098 "An Act To Ensure Reasonable Accommodations for Children for Whom Medical Marijuana Has Been Recommended"

We need to stick together… as communities joining across Maine!

Everyone has seen Municipalities take an aggressive stance in the wake of the Adult Use vote in November. Some have enacted land use Ordinances and Zoning, while others have outright Banned (Newport). Many Municipalities have also not bothered to distinguish between Medical providers from Adult Use providers.
Another consideration on the table will be LD 672 "An Act To Clarify a Municipality's Authority To Adopt and Enforce Land Use Regulations for Marijuana Facilities"
We would like to ask help from the general public to Confront this and be present to advise Municipalities so that we do not suffer an unintentionally altered Medical access issue taken on at the Local level.
ACTION: We would like to ask members of the general public, patients and other concerned citizens to reach out, by either calling or emailing our office. Let us know if you know of municipalities which are enacting these local rules. Information you provide us with... can help protect Maine’s Patients and Caregivers from costly legislative errors made at the local level. We will need all members of our communities to engage, to help educate our local selectmen and town representatives on how we can improve situations that towns face across Maine. MMCM would like to track these municipalities so that we can help to organize community outreach and engagement with these municipalities. This will be a complex task and we need YOUR help!!

Lets encourage folks to call or email their congress and senate Representatives in Washington DC; that would be Polliquin, Pingree, Collins, and King. Ask them to vote for and co-sponsor HR975, Respect Marijuana Laws Act of 2017 in the 115th Congress. Request a written response....

Catherine Lewis, Board Chair along with Directors, Darrell Gudroe and Hamilton Hall attended the public forum before the Marijuana Legalization Committee, on Feb 28th, 2017 to give testimoney on behalf of MMCM

February 28, 2017

Good afternoon Senator Katz and members of the committee. I am speaking on beh_plf of the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine Trade Association members, that consists of caregivers and patients who depend on medical cannabis to treat a variety of illnesses.

I am the board chair, a caregiver and a patient myself. I have concerns surrounding the implementation of the Adult Use program. On the news, in the papers and in these very halls, it has been asked , "Why do we need the Medical Program if we have Adult Use?" Just the fact the question is being asked is concerning. This concern leads me to wonder how many people have real ly been paying attention to the current program and the testimonies that have been presented by patients, caregivers and other professionals over the past several years as we have been improving our Medical Program. If you are not aware, we have one of the best medical programs in the nation. Our patients have privacy that many states do not offer. Other states are trying to emulate us. Our trade organization receives calls from other states looking for guidance in improving their own programs. I'm greatly concerned to hear that some believe we should merge our medical program into the recreational market.

As a caregiver I consult with many patients. Most are seriously ill. Many are older and require assistance finding what works for them. Most are concerned with privacy. It takes time to develop a relationship and trust. I often work with their recommending doctor in developing a strategy and ongoing updates are necessary as the patient progresses. The service I and many other caregivers provide would not be available in a retail setting. As a caregiver the strains I grow are chosen based on the needs of my clients. We have several strains that are low the, and high cbd which will not get the patient "high" but treats many ailments. They are not easy strains to grow, they have lower yields than others and are not popular with the recreational markets. My patients depend on these strains, and they would not be readily available in the retail setting. They are not what'the majority of recreational customers would be looking for and would not make sense for adult use growers - which is an important issue to differentiate: medical marijuana patients are patients, not customers. The custom products that I produce out of these various strains would be difficult for patients to find in a retail setting. I customize strengths and dosages based on the individual patients needs, not in bulk.

These scenarios are not unique to me. This is our current medical marijuana program. This is the type ofservice that many caregivers offer to medical patients. I have been teaching classes for the past several years for caregivers who want to be able to t ruly take care of the seriously ill. The Trade Association has almost 500 members. Our program currently services over 50,000 patients. There are 8 dispensaries and over 3000 active caregivers. We need to protect, preserve and promote our medical program, the patients and the small businesses that currently serve them.

It also should be mentioned that the people of Maine when presented with the bill before voting for adult use were assured the medical program would not be impacted by " legalizing adult use." To immediately turn around and suggest sunsetting the medical program into adult use defies voter intent.

Thank you for your time and attention,
Catherine Lewis
Board Chair/Director of Education

Legislative Update Jan 30, 2017

The Governor has signed LD 88, HP 66,128th Legislature

An Act To Delay the Implementation of Certain Portions of the Marijuana Legalization Act

Maine Gov. Paul LePage used an executive order to move oversight of licensing and enforcement relating to legal marijuana to the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations. The governor says the alcoholic beverages bureau has expertise in managing retail sales, licensing and enforcement, and thus should have oversight.

In short and within set limitations, possessing and growing marijuana for recreational purposes is now legal, while buying or selling it is not legal yet. The state has until next year to develop rules for regulating new retail stores. Medical marijuana policy hasn’t changed.

The Joint Select Committee on Marijuana Legalization Implementation has been established. In addition to considering marijuana-related bills, the committee has been given the authority to submit its own legislation.

Republican Senate President Mike Thibodeau of Winterport said the committee has a busy session ahead of it. “There is an enormous amount of work ahead for this committee because of the myriad issues surrounding legalization that concern public safety, retail sales of the drug and state government oversight, to name a few,”

The members of the Joint Select Committee on Marijuana Legalization Implementation:

Sen. Roger Katz, R-Augusta, co-chairman

Sen. Kimberley Rosen, R-Bucksport

Sen. Joyce Maker, R-Calais

Sen. Mark Dion, D-Portland

Sen. Susan Deschambault, D-Biddeford

Rep. Teresa Pierce, D-Falmouth, co-chair

Rep. Kimberly Monaghan, D-Cape Elizabeth

Rep. Scott Hamann, D-South Portland

Rep. Craig Hickman, D-Winthrop

Rep. Erik Jorgensen, D-Portland

Rep. Lydia Blume, D-York

Rep. Donald Marean, R-Hollis

Rep. Bruce Bickford, R-Auburn

Rep. Lance Harvell, R-Farmington

Rep. Patrick Corey, R-Windham

Rep. Michael Perkins, R-Oakland

Rep. Kent Ackley, I-Monmouth

And on the national level, Congress must decide before April 28 whether to reapprove the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment and if it does not, the Department of Justice would be able to use federal funds to prosecute individuals in the state-legal medical marijuana industry.

MMCM has submitted a comprehensive bill to expand the medical marijuana program and to regulate that expansion. An Act to Amend Maine’s Medical Marijuana Law. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Deb Sanderson and Senator Eric Brakey. The bill is at the Revisor’s Office awaiting production into final form. The Revisor's Office is the Legislature's central production office where all legislative instruments, including bills and amendments, are initially filed and then produced in final form for introduction. The final form of the bill will be available when it has completed the Revisor’s process.

Update on status of Legalization……

The Govenor has signed off on the legalization bill. It will take effect in 30 days.However the State has nine months to develop the program rules. There is no retail sales at this time. Caregivers and Dispensaries still must only sell to current card holding patients. After 30 days any Maine resident over the age of 21 will be able to posses or grow their own 6 flowering plants.

We at MMCM are still working on bills that will grant patients greater and safer access to Medical Cannabis. Tomorrow at the Hall of Flags, we will have a table and our legislative committee will be there to help educate our Representatives and Senators on why we need to protect and preserve the Medical program.
