If you’re a low income medical marijuana patient in the state of Maine, you definitely want to be in Portland on Saturday.
According to the Maine Patients Coalition, based in Portland, Maine, low income patients have been priced right out of using the state-run medical marijuana program in the Pine Tree State. “And these are the sick Maine patients who need this program the most!” said Chris Kenoyer, director of the MPC.
Kenoyer said that Maine’s low income patients have been “completely abandoned” by Maine’s state-run program, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and by the legal Maine dispensaries. “There has to be ‘compassionate caregiving’ here in Maine for ALL sick patients!” he said.
The Patients Coalition invites legal medical marijuana patients in Maine to come watch history being made at noon this Saturday, September 1, at the Atlantic CannaFest in Deering Oaks Park, Portland. “Maine law allows us to donate excess medical marijuana to other sick legal Maine patients,” Kenoyer said.
