Who is MMCM?

In 2010, Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine was one of the first volunteer trade associations organized in the United States and dedicated itself to the support and promotion of safe access to medical marijuana. MMCM continues to advocate for patient rights and access to safe, quality, cannabis medicines and the caregivers who provide for them. MMCM also developed a training program for those who wish to participate in Maines’ cannabis programs to help them stay in compliance and to promote safe practices. Education, Advocacy and Legislation is their motto.

 

MMCM History

In 1999, Maine became the fifth state in the country to legalize cannabis for medicinal use.

Voters then passed a Citizens Medical Marijuana Initiative in 2009 allowing patients who have a doctor’s certification to purchase medicinal cannabis from a registered caregiver or dispensary.

Following the passage of this Medical Marijuana Initiative, MMCM was formed as a Trade Association in 2010 to provide advocacy and education for patients, caregivers and the public.

While implementing the Citizens Initiative, the Maine Legislature made major changes before passing it into law in 2010, including a ban on outdoor cultivation, removal of legal protections for patients, and requiring all patients be registered with the State.

In response to these dramatic changes, MMCM became active at the State House and in 2011 intentions of the Citizens Initiative were restored.

MMCM continued to work to improve Maine’s Medical Marijuana Laws and our medical program became voted the best in the country by Americans for Safe Access.

MMCM developed an education program to teach the Maine Medical Laws to patients, caregivers and others interested in the Program. Best business practices was the second class started to ensure compliance with the Medical Program, Taxes and Labor Laws.

However, once again there are State Officials, Legislatures and Lobbyists for other interests pushing legislation and rules that go against the intent of the people, patients and providers in our State legal programs.

Through education, drafting legislation, lobbying and mobilizing efforts, MMCM and our wider community members have been, and will continue to be instrumental in defending the medical program during this time of change as cannabis is: “legalized”.
