Medical Marijuana in Maine  
Last updated: February 2020

Introduction

In 1979, Maine enacted the Marijuana Therapeutic Research Program to facilitate and encourage research and "strictly controlled" experimentation of therapeutic uses of marijuana (see PL 1979, c. 457). IB 1999, c. 1 allowed prescribing and limited possession of medical marijuana, but the law lacked a distribution mechanism. IB 2009, c. 1 allowed “the establishment of nonprofit dispensaries to provide marijuana to qualifying patients.” For more information about the evolution of Maine's medical marijuana laws, please see the Law Library's website "Medical Marijuana in Maine."

This legislative history provides a statutory history of Title 22, Chapters 558-A, 558-B, 558-C, and 22 MRS 2383-B, as it relates to medical marijuana. It also includes proposed and enacted legislation related to medical marijuana in general. It does not include legislation regarding transfer of funds from the Medical Use of Marijuana Fund.
