Medical marijuana regulations finalized

The Department of Public Health has finalized the regulations governing medical dispensaries for prescription marijuana.  The 52 page regulations were finalized on May 8th and will be effective May 24th.  The regulations cover the registration or qualification of all parties concerned, cultivation, security, inspections and revocation.
Some cities and towns have attempted to ban the dispensaries, but the Attorney General's office has issued decisions that support towns' rights to a temporary moratorium of dispensaries, but rejects their power to ban the facilities as being contrary to state law.
