Trip Ticket Form Revised
In response to helpful feedback received from Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program (MMMP) registrants, the Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) has revised the recently released trip ticket form. Most notably, the form has been condensed to one page from two, with a user able to fit several lines of text in Section 3 before necessitating a second page.
MMMP registrants may use either version of the form. As a reminder, the use of OMP-issued trip tickets becomes mandatory starting on July 1, 2020.

OMP Completes Emergency Adoption of Marijuana Sample Collection Rules, Proposes Routine Technical Adoption
Earlier today, OMP completed emergency rulemaking related to the sample collection of marijuana and marijuana products. Completion of this important work establishes additional administrative regulations by which samples of marijuana and marijuana products can be collected for Maine's forthcoming adult use industry.
The rulemaking activity was necessitated following changes to state law resulting from Public Laws 2019, Chapter 676. Governor Janet T. Mills signed LD 1545, An Act Regarding the Collection of Samples for Testing of Adult Use Marijuana and Adult Use Marijuana Products, into law on March 23, 2020.
The rules were emergency adopted and are effective until at least Tuesday, September 22, 2020. The new regulations can be found in 18-691 C.M.R. ch. 1, the Adult Use Marijuana Program Rule, and 18-691 C.M.R. ch. 5, the Rules for the Certification of Marijuana Testing Facilities.
Simultaneous to their emergency adoption, OMP has proposed to complete routine technical rulemaking that will make these additions permanent. A public hearing is scheduled via Zoom for Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 10:00AM EDT. A link will be sent out to participants prior to the date of the public hearing. Interested parties should contact OMP if they would like to attend or participate in the public hearing. OMP will be accepting public comments from now until 5:00PM EDT on Monday, August 10, 2020.
