Maine is one of only 20 states (plus the District of Columbia) with a Medical Marijuana Program. Although Maine has also led the country in the "decriminalization" of marijuana, individuals, patients, caregivers or business entities, can still face State and Federal criminal and civil penalties for their use, cultivation, and possession of marijuana.
In addition to issues involving criminal law, medicinal marijuana patients, caregivers and related businesses in Maine must adapt to a constantly changing layers of administrative “red tape” involving State and Municipal rules, regulations and ordinances**.
My practice is focused on helping you or your business navigate your compliance with Maine’s growing list of marijuana laws.

Though the State of Maine’s Medical Marijuana Act and associated state health and human services regulations allow medicinal marijuana businesses, marijuana sales, marijuana cultivation, and marijuana possession by certain qualified and or registered individuals and affiliated businesses, the sale, cultivation, use, and distribution of marijuana (including hemp) remains ILLEGAL under Maine and Federal law.
** The City of Portland recently passed (November 2013) a municipal initiative allowing for the “legalization” of marijuana possession / use, under certain defined circumstances.
