Medical Marijuana Patients Protest in Maine

Ability Maine's Mike Reynolds covers the patient protests in Hallowell and Augusta of the state's failure to warn patients that the medical marijuana dispensary, The Wellness Connection of Maine, was under investigation for tainted by mold and pesticide.

According to Reynolds' article
The state's month-long investigation of the WCM, which has four dispensaries in Maine, revealed more than 20 violations of regulations regarding the cultivation of medical marijuana. Most of the violations involved the use of pesticides and fungicides to kill mold on the plants. During the course of the investigation, the state allowed patients to continue to purchase the tainted product.
