Can I use medical marijuana in Maine while on state probation?

Postby cleirach70 » Fri Feb 24, 2012 12:48 am

I am on probation in the state of Maine and I have conditions against me drinking or using illegal drugs including marijuana. That is how it is worded in my conditions I believe. I am currently on adderall xr and my probation officer has no problems with that. I want to get my medical marijuana card but I do not know if there are laws that would prohibit me from using since I am on probation. Does anyone know if probation can override a prescription written by a doctor? Since it is for marijuana? Thank you.

Medical marijuana cards are not prescriptions since a prescriptions is controlled by the FDA and they have not approved marijuana cards used at dispensaries.
A pharmaceutical product, Marinol, (Dronabinol) is widely available through prescription. It comes in the form of a pill and is also being studied by researchers for suitability via other delivery methods, such as an inhaler or patch. The active ingredient of Marinol is synthetic THC, which has been found to relieve the nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy for cancer patients and to assist with loss of appetite with AIDS patients.
Technically, a marijuana card is not a prescription.
