Workers Blow Whistle on Pesticide Use at Maine Marijuana Dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, March, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
THOMASTON, ME – After management ignored complaints about the use of pesticides on medical marijuana plants and other unsatisfactory working conditions, workers at Wellness Connection dispensary in Thomaston say that they took the next step – they reported the violations to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. And now they’re forming a union branch with the United Food and Commercial Workers International (UFCW), the largest retail union in the country.
 
On Monday, March 26, the Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services (DLRS), which oversees the Maine Medical Marijuana Program, revealed the results of their investigation, which found a laundry list of violations at Wellness Connection’s growing facilities and four medical marijuana dispensaries located around the state.
 
The DLRS cited the use of pesticides in the growing of medical marijuana, the lack of proper security and the production and sale of an illegal form of marijuana among the more than 20 violations of state rules governing medical marijuana that were uncovered during its month-long investigation of Wellness Connection, which operates dispensaries in Thomaston, Brewer, Hallowell and Portland and grows marijuana in Auburn and Thomaston.

Man grew cannabis plantation to cure his mother's cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
A MAN who believed radiation and chemotherapy treatment killed three loved ones started growing cannabis because it was a "major benefit" to the immune system and "cured" his mother of cancer.
 
Michael Bede Dooley, 59, was given a six-month fully suspended jail sentence in the NT Supreme Court for cultivating 81 cannabis plants, The Northern Territory News reports.
 
The service station owner of Batchelor, south of Darwin, had been growing the crops for up to seven months when police raided his property in May last year.
 
The court was told that Dooley was growing the plants because he believed cannabinoids were beneficial to the human immune system and could cure his sick mother.
 
Justice Peter Barr was told his belief stemmed from the loss of his wife, grandmother and friend who were all undergoing radiation or chemotherapy when they died.
 
Justice Barr said: "This case is a most unusual one."
