PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- There have been a number of questions surrounding medical marijuana dispensaries in the state, since the new law was passed in November.
At a convention in Portland today, nearly 250 people came out to hear the ins and outs of the law, and learn how they can get involved in growing or selling medical marijuana.
Television host, Montel Williams was the keynote speaker. Suffering from multiple sclorosis, Williams has been an advocate for the uses of marijuana for medical patients.
A division of the Health and Human Services Department is accepting applications for dispensaries until June 25th. Only applications from non-profit corporations will be accepted.
