Maine Medical Marijuana Law
In 1999, Maine voters passed Ballot Question 2 into law which allowed for the medical use of marijuana. In 2009, Question 5 improved upon the Question 2 by allowing the possibility of adding more qualifying medical conditions as well as dispensaries to operate throughout Maine. Residents with at least one qualifying medical condition can get a medical marijuana certification from a doctor which will allow the patient to possess and use marijuana.
A qualifying patient may possess up to 2 ½ ounces of prepared marijuana and cultivate or allocate the total cultivation of a maximum of 6 mature marijuana plants.
