Here's my message and questions for MA DPH
Subject: Medical Marijuana Regs Hurting Patients
Since you shut down caregivers (1 to 1 ratio rule), where do you suggest patients go to get medical marijuana? Why would any patient pay $200 for a medical marijuana recommendation to then be denied medicine for a year and then when it's here? It's a medical marijuana monopoly, paying hiring prices than on the streets? How can you justify this? Do you not realize that many people started growing with the intention of being legal caregivers and now what do you think they are going to do? Still supply patients but not in your program? You've grown the black market and left patients out. Exactly the opposite of what 63% of voters wanted. What's the cost benefit for patients with your new regulations? Been asking these questions since the last hearing and never heard a response to any of these questions..
For this you pat yourselves on the back?
