Medicail Marijuana in Maine

Come Jan 1st, Maine's first medical marijuana dispensary will open in Auburn Maine. Seven more will be allowed to operate in Maine. Rhode Island will open three dispensaries next year also. Seven other States have over 1000 dispensaries.

Beacon Hill has had legislation before it for 9 years and still cannot seem to realize what 15 other States already approve of, marijuana has medicinal benefits and can be a revenue source.

To be honest, I think the state has more important issues to deal with then whether we can sell pot here, don't you agree?

More important than new revenue sources?.... maybe so Eric. I'm betting Framingham would reap a couple hundred thousand dollars in tax revenue. The City of Oakland took in millions in taxes for medical marijuana last year,

More important than helping the sick.. never.

I am with you on this one Jim, both the revenue issue and the helping the sick issue.
