Hey Everyone -

 

Just received an email from Paul McCarrier from MMCM 

 

Well it is official....

 

1531 passed the senate and house and is heading to the Gov. Desk,
where he is going to sign it

 

This will implement the first - official pesticide/ chemical rules regarding Medical Marijuana

 

This bill, is good for patients - as it sets rules what a dispensary can use on the plants it is growing.... however - currently the way the law is written - only Dispensaries are clearly listed as being umbrella ed by that rule - it does not specifically state Caregivers - although - as I had previously stated it was just an error by omission due to the "redundancies removed" when they Completely overhauled the rules, with the revisions of 12/31/12.

This new rule - once implemented fully includes Caregivers in this restriction.

 

BTW - I specifically asked the question- at the Waterville meeting he presented at - IF - Hydrogen Peroxide can be used in treatment  as a fungicide... or cleaning agent.

 

Paul McCarrier clearly stated that Remedy Compassion was just cited for using this exact item to clean the walls of their grow op.

 

 

 

LD 1531

An Act To Maintain Access to Safe Medical Marijuana

 

Bill text:  title="External link">http://www.mainelegi...ts/SP057801.asp

Sponsored by Senator Saviello.

 

Summary:

The bill prohibits pesticides that require federal registration from being used on medical marijuana, but would allow use of any of the pesticides included in the list list of minimum risk pesticides that are exempt from federal regulation under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, Section 25( B).

 

The list includes: Castor oil (U.S.P. or equivalent); Linseed oil; Cedar oil; Malic acid;Cinnamon and cinnamon oil; Mint and mint oil; Citric acid; Peppermint and peppermint oil; Citronella and Citronella oil; 2-Phenethyl propionate (2-phenylethyl propionate); Cloves and clove oil; Potassium sorbate; Corn gluten meal; Putrescent whole egg solids; Corn oil; Rosemary and rosemary oil; Cottonseed oil; Sesame (includes ground sesame plant) and sesame oil; Dried Blood; Sodium chloride (common salt); Eugenol; Sodium lauryl sulfate; Garlic and garlic oil; Soybean oil; Geraniol; Thyme and thyme oil; Geranium oil; White pepper; Lauryl sulfate Zinc metal strips (consisting solely of zinc metal and impurities); Lemongrass oil.

 

This bill would specify that use of pesticides in the list that don’t require federal registration would be allowed for medical marijuana.

 

Outcome: An amended version LD 1531, An Act To Maintain Access to Safe Medical Marijuana, passed with majority support out of the Agriculture Committee. As it's been classified as an “Emergency Bill,” it would need 2/3 vote support in the House & Senate for approval.

Something is only a pesticide if a] it's labelled a pesticide or b] you call it a pesticide (think AACT - kills bugs, OK to use according to DHHS). Therefore, i'm spraying H2O2 to clean, not to kill bugs.

I know... many things do not make sense... but... at least they are defining some things, that can be used, in their eyes.....
