On Wednesday night, the Senate passed legislation 13 to11 to allow a patient with a “debilitating medical condition” or that patient’s designated caretaker to cultivate and possess up to six ounces of marijuana, four mature plants and 12 seedlings at a registered “cultivation location.” It would allow the patient or caregiver to possess two ounces elsewhere.

The first medical marijuana dispensary in Portland, Maine announced Wednesday that they quietly have begun serving patients at a new locations. This was one of four dispensaries that have opened this year. The facility is around 6,500 square foot and is by Wellness Connection of Maine under the provisions of a 2009 state law which has allowed eight medical marijuana distribution sites across Maine.
Rebecca DeKeuster, executive director of Wellness Connection of Maine, said her organization is opting for a low-key opening at its Portland facility, saying in a statement that no grand opening is planned and that an open house for community leaders and “educational events” are scheduled for later in the year.
The proposed Portland location got some heat in 2011 when Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program Manager John Thiele expressed concerns about the facility’s planned “vapor lounge,” where patients could sit and breathe in marijuana-based medicinal compounds while avoiding the respiratory and carcinogenic risks associated with smoking.
Wellness Connection of Maine, which previously did business as Northeast Patients Group, dropped plans for the vapor lounge in response to Thiele’s concerns the room would become a hangout.
In a statement released by Wellness Connection of Maine, Portland dispensary manager Diane Schinella said she expects the location to serve more than 100 patients in its first few months of operation, with plans to hire as many as eight employees there within the first six months.
Only qualified patients are allowed to enter the dispensaries, which are state regulated and permitted. Patients can seek doctors’ prescriptions of marijuana to help ease the pain of chronic illnesses.

In Richardson’s words: “Medical cannabis is no longer a radical idea — this is not Cheech and Chong with a bong.” Republican Rep. Joey Hensley, a Hohenwald physician, raised concerns that doctors aren’t trained on how to prescribe marijuana.
The companion bill has yet to be scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Government Operations Committee.

Alex Wong, an entrepreneur, is starting a franchise of the hydroponics store WeGrow to help people grow marijuana. After watching his mother suffer for cancer and no medicines helping, but marijuana, Wong decided open his own store to help move the medical marijuana colony forward.
The store’s chain has locations in California and Arizona that sells everything you need to cultivate and consume the plant. Because individuals in Washington will not be allowed to grow marijuana, W ong expects his sales of supplies such as soil, fertilizer and grow lights will come from the city’s certified cultivators — the list of up to 10 will be announced by the Department of Health on Friday. The same day, weGrow will host its grand opening with a news conference at 1:30 p.m., followed by an open house until 6:30 p.m.
But Wong expects patients to take advantage of the educational programming, including cooking demonstrations and indoor-gardening workshops (techniques for marijuana also work for tomatoes), and other resources at the store, such as a board helping connect them with caregivers willing to run errands.
