In Massachusetts around 4,000 people have been prescribed medical marijuana by their doctors and have been granted certifications from the same but all this is of no use as dispensaries have yet to open even two years after Massachusetts voters legalized medical use of the drugs.
With no legal dispensaries and restrictions on growing the drug in the homes, the drug is out of the reach of most of the patients' and this forces them to turn to illegal pot on the black market. Patients are even considering suing the administration of Governor Deval Patrick.
Matthew Allen, executive director of the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance, addressed the patients at a State House press conference. He said that his group is examining the prospects of bringing legal action to speed the licensing process, because the "state has failed on multiple fronts".
Earlier, the Department of Public Health approved 20 applicants for provisional licenses in January but problems arose when they eliminated nine of the licenses because of news reports questioning the finances of some while other reports stated about the misleading information provided by others.
Regulators say that they have high hope that a few dispensaries may open by winter. To this the patients said at the press conference that the approved number won't be enough to handle the demand.
Children with seizures can be largely helped by marijuana and the non-availability of it is a huge concern for the patients.
John Polanowicz, state health secretary assured that the legalized dispensaries will follow soon. He said, "I am very happy this program is moving forward. It's really important we get this right. The department is not letting up on the gas in terms of getting this done".
