  • Crime outside of dispensaries no different then outside banks. Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion joined the Maine Civil Liberties Union, said on June 17th of 2010: "Medical marijuana is a public health issue, it's not a law enforcement problem. The data from California suggests that the risk of crime outside a dispensary is no greater than what we'd experience at a bank. So I think we should just move forward and exercise the common sense that the voters have demonstrated in repeated votes on this measure."[1]
  • Marijuana is natural; should be no ban on dispensaries. Cedaredge Town Council Trustee Nancy Sturgill said in 2009: "This [marijuana] is a very natural product, said Sturgill, and I don’t feel confident in denying Cedaredge residents access at this point.”[2]
