Mass. proposes fees for medical marijuana program


A public hearing on the fee structure was scheduled for June 14.

Earlier this month, the state Public Health Council gave final approval to a wide range of other regulations covering medical marijuana.

The rules allow patients to receive a 60-day supply of 10 ounces of marijuana, though doctors could recommend that some acutely ill patients receive more.

The regulations require proof of a bona fide doctor-patient relationship before a doctor can recommend marijuana, and also require that dispensaries ensure the safety of the drug by testing for pesticides, mold and mildew.
