We have been informed by the enforcement devision of the Maine Medical Marijuana Program that we can no longer provide clones to anyone who is not one of our patients.
But first let me digress:
- Regarding the Maine recreational marijuana market, because of the ambiguity of the rules as they are currently exist we have not and will not delve into that market, and until there are clear guidelines and rules that will remain our policy.
- Our interaction with the the Maine Medical Marijuana Program – like many of you, I’ve heard horror stories about what has gone on when caregivers and “the man” collide. Let me say from my experience that I could not have been treated more like a professional that I was the day they showed up on my door (SURPRISE!). We had a discussion in which he listened to me (in what I believe was a true attempt to understand what I was saying), he explained thoughtfully their interpretation of the rule and other than disagreeing with the message he was delivering I can’t say one bad thing about their unannounced visit (we have had several email exchanges and conversations since that first encounter and I appreciate the continued professionalism).
So without getting into a long drawn out explanation of our discussion that day (though I would be happy to for anyone who might be interested) the bottom line is that moving forward we can ONLY provide clones to our own patients. You can check the rules regarding an official explanation of what a clone is here (http://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/public-health-systems/mmm/documents/MMMP-Rules-144c122.pdf)
We respectfully disagree with their interpretation of the rule (or lack there of ) but unfortunately we only have an opinion, they have that AND the authority behind them (checkmate, they win), but we are working behind the scenes to see what can be done to provide more clarification in the hopes that we can return to providing clones to other medical marijuana caregivers and patients other than our own.
Lastly and while on the discussion of patients, those who have general questions on how to become a Maine medical marijuana patient or specifically how to become one of our patients are welcomed to email us (Info@MaineSeedlings.com) or text us (1-207-613-5650) for further information. We accept out of state patients with Maine reciprocity.
