    Can you please add to this list the amount ANY person with a medical RECOMMENDATION from a doctor, not a ‘licensed producer’ that had to first pay great expense to a ‘panel’ for approval will be able to grow in their home or on their property? This is the same double speak ’21 years or older and licensed’ as found in the two separate versions of the MPP bill? And clearly this website illustrates ignorance to law and procedure, mind you. A basic understanding of state law is required before you can assert any position.
