Mass. Medical Marijuana Caregiver Sues State | Wbur

They were stepping beyond their purview when they wrote many of these regulations. And were going to take them to task for it, because many of these regulations do whatever they possibly can to eliminate the availability of cannabis for patients. Downings suit, filed in Suffolk Superior Court, seeks an injunction that would allow him to once again provide marijuana to more than one patient. More than 1,300 patients also received letters from DPH, according to the agency. Those letters tell the patients their caregiver is in violation of the one-patient rule and that the patient can choose a new caregiver or determine that they no longer require the services of a personal caregiver at this time. The letter does not note that qualified medical marijuana patients who must have a certification letter from a physician are allowed to grow marijuana for themselves. Fifteen of Downings patients joined his lawsuit, saying they now cant get their marijuana for conditions including multiple sclerosisand cancer. Several of them submitted sworn affidavits to the court.
