AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- Maine could become the first state to add addiction to opioid prescriptions and illegal narcotics like heroin to its list of conditions that qualify for medical marijuana.

Nearly 30 medical marijuana caregivers and patients told state regulators at a public hearing on Tuesday that marijuana eases the symptoms of opioid withdrawal and offers a healthier alternative to the prescription painkillers that can lead to addiction.

Joseph Legendre, 50, of Mount Vernon, choked back tears as he spoke about the pain he endured after hurting his back 26 years ago at construction site and how marijuana finally eased that pain. Britney Lashier, 23, of Saco, said smoking marijuana helped her break a heroin addiction she picked up in Morocco while studying in college.

"Marijuana saved my life for sure," she said.

Marijuana Legalization in New England Is Stalled by Opiate Crisis

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

MONTPELIER, Vt. — First came Colorado and Washington. Then Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C. Now, advocates for legal marijuana are looking to New England, hoping this part of the country will open a new front in their efforts to expand legalization nationwide.

But this largely liberal region is struggling with the devastating impact of opiate abuse, which is disrupting families, taxing law enforcement agencies and taking lives. And many lawmakers and public officials are balking at the idea of legalizing a banned substance, citing potential social costs.

In November 2014, Washington D.C. voters approved a marijuana legalization initiative by an overwhelming margin (71%). Following the vote, the question came up whether or not private marijuana clubs were allowed. Marijuana sales are still illegal in DC. The D.C. Council put in place a temporary ban on such entities. Today, the Council voted to make that ban permanent. Per The Washington Times:

The D.C. Council voted Tuesday to impose a permanent ban on private marijuana-smoking clubs, ending months of political hand-wringing over where to allow residents to consume pot.

In a 7-to-6 vote, the council made permanent a 90-day ban on pot clubs in the nation’s capital, where marijuana possession is legal though still a federal offense.

61% of DC residents that participated in a poll earlier this year supported private marijuana clubs. That, combined with the overwhelming victory on Election Day, has led many to question why the DC Council would make such a move. Especially since there is a public meeting tonight, and a task force is still looking into the issue.
