Reason Applying for Workgroup: I applied to advocate for medical patients who rely on the medical program in Maine. Their voices need to continue to be part of the conversation when decisions about the program are being made. To understand the reasoning behind and participate in decisions being made about the medical program. To work collaboratively with all involved parties to find common ground so that the medical program and adult use program can co-exist, each serving the unique needs of their respective demographic.
