One Day Of Public Hearings On Medical Marijuana Regulations
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is holding three simultaneous public hearings Friday on proposed medical marijuana regulations.
The draft regulations do not specify what diseases or conditions may be treated with marijuana. Dr. Karen Munkaci, a physician and breast cancer survivor said a physician is best able to determine if a patient might be helped by marijuana
The regulations allow up to a ten ounce supply of marijuana for a 60 day period. Medical marijuana dispensaries must grow their own supply, test it for impurities and have strict inventory controls. The public hearings are scheduled to begin at 10AM in Boston, in Plymouth and at the Look Park Garden House in Northampton.
