|Processing of MMMP Registry Identification Card Applications|
In response to the ongoing public health pandemic, OMP continues to prioritize the processing of caregiver assistant and dispensary employee applications within the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Program (MMMP). Due to a significant increase in volume, in most cases, the processing time of these applications has increased to two weeks.
As a reminder, registered caregivers seeking to continue operating within the MMMP must submit their renewal applications at least 30 days prior to the expiration of their existing credential.
Forthcoming Track and Trace Deployment
As OMP gets closer to launching the adult use program and its corresponding track and trace component, MMMP registrants should be aware that focus will begin to shift to introducing Metrc to the medical program. Additional information on the deployment of Metrc to Maine’s existing medical marijuana program and the obligations of registered caregivers, dispensaries, and manufacturing facilities will be available soon, but registrants should be prepared for the possibility of a late 2020 introduction of medical track and trace.
