Maine’s dilemma

Maine’s Attorney General has launched a panel to investigate how to implement a med-pot ballot initiative passed last November. The initiative allows patients with diseases like AIDS, glaucoma and epilepsy to grow six plants for personal use.
Legislators have proposed that the state should provide marijuana to those too ill to grow their own. Since the state cannot grow medical pot without breaking federal law, Attorney General Andrew Ketterer has suggested that state law enforcement could redistribute marijuana seized from recreational users and grow-ops.
