(This post was clarified at 9:40 a.m. on March 30 to note that the Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine lobbys against legalization of marijuana and for caregivers, not dispensaries. - S.M.)
No official confirmation from the LePage administration yet, but it appears the governor has a dinner date with medical marijuana advocates.
Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine, the group lobbying for the state's marijuana caregivers and against legalization legislation, submitted the winning bid for dinner with the governor during Thursday's annual Legislative Memorial Auction.
Auction attendees say the winning bid was $1,000, apparently higher than the one submitted by legislative Democrats.
Lots of opportunity for good-natured humor here, but that's probably best left to readers and commenters . . .Tweet
