What is MMCM?

MMCM is a Maine Trade Association dedicated to the support and promotion of safe access to medical marijuana. MMCM has been providing education and advocacy for patients and caregivers since 2010.

History

In 1999, Maine became one of the first states in the country to legalize cannabis for medical use. Voters passed a citizens initiative in 2009, allowing a person who has a doctor’s certification to purchase medicinal cannabis from a caregiver or dispensary.

MMCM was formed as a Trade Association in 2010 to provide advocacy and education for Maine following the passage of the Medical Marijuana Initiative.

The Maine State legislature pushed through major changes to the Initiative before allowing it to go into law in 2010.

These changes included a ban on outdoor cultivation, removal of legal protections for patients, and requiring all patients be registered with the State.

MMCM became active at the State House in response to these dramatic changes in the Citizen Initiated law.

In 2011 the intent of the Citizen Initiated law was restored.

Since that time MMCM has has kept a presence at the State House every Legislative session, working to improve Maine State medical marijuana laws.

In 2013 Maine’s medical Marijuana Laws were rated the best in the country by Americans For Safe Access; balancing needed safety protections with patient privacy protections.
