8/17/20 - Maine regulators announced that recreational marijuana sales can finally begin on October 9. Voters there approved legal cannabis on the same day in 2016 that those in California, Massachusetts and Nevada also passed initiatives to end prohibition, and those states all began sales years ago at this point.
8/5/20 - Portland, Maine officials argued in federal court that Acreage Holdings can't pursue a lawsuit against the city's marijuana business ownership residency policy due to ongoing national prohibition.
5/12/20 - Maine regulators said they won't enforce a marijuana business licensing residency requirement after the state attorney general refused to defend it in court. Separately, the lack of approval for businesses by municipalities is delaying the launch of the state's recreational cannabis sales program.
4/3/20 - Maine regulators issued guidance on social distancing requirements for marijuana businesses and said they may accept expired driver’s licenses or identification cards amid the coronavirus outbreak.
3/25/20 - Maine regulators said that medical cannabis operations are essential and exempt from guidance urging many businesses to temporarily close during the coronavirus outbreak, but they said that the pandemic could delay the launch of the state's recreational marijuana market.
A qualifying patient may possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis and cultivate up to six (6) cannabis plants or designate a caregiver or dispensary to do so on the patient’s behalf. If you are a registered patient and elect to grow your own medicine or have someone do it for you, you must indicate this on the application for your ID.
Registration with the Maine Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) is voluntary and not necessary to have qualified status for legal protections. Patients who possess a medical marijuana registry ID card issued by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services are required to have the card with them whenever they are in possession of cannabis. State law enforcement recognizes the card as proof of patient status. Patients who are not registered must have their original physician certification form and a Maine-issued photo ID and present both to law enforcement on request.
Caregivers are required to register with the MMMP unless the caregiver and patient are members of the same household. Caregivers may not have a criminal conviction and are subject to a background check. If a patient or caregiver is found in possession of more than the limit set by law, the excess cannabis must be forfeit to law enforcement, but the patient or caregiver may present the medical purpose of the cannabis as a legal defense if charged.
Minor patients must have their parent or legal guardian apply as caregiver on their behalf.
The patient registry identification card is voluntary and free. Program application, forms, and instructions for patients, caregivers and physicians can be found online at:
You are not allowed to possess cannabis in a school bus; on preschool, primary or secondary school grounds; or in any correctional facility. Do not smoke in public or while operating a vehicle.
A minor-patient's application must include parental consent. You will need to submit copies of any documents establishing parental relationship or legal guardianship with the application. In addition, the parent or legal custodian/guardian must serve as caregiver for the minor-patient and control dosage/frequency.
