Can it Work

State health officials say the medical cannabis program has largely steered clear of problems in its first five years. However, when scaling enrollment up further, it may be difficult for the dozen or so staff members in the Office of Medical Cannabis.

With the addition of chronic pain as a qualifying condition soon, it is expected to bring a new wave of patients into the program. There will also be twice as many medical marijuana dispensaries in the near future. A central state cannabis office with a more robust staff would be better equipped to handle a major rise in enrollment.

It is also believed that a joint operation would also make life easier for law enforcement. Officers are often puzzled by the scattered regulatory framework. It causes delays in verifying that farmers are indeed registered to grow hemp, or that a person possessing medical cannabis is a certified patient. A state agency could really help this.
