MAINE: The 4th annual Home Grown Maine expo kicked off this weekend at the Augusta Civic Center. It’s a medical marijuana trade show for companies that sell pot related items.
Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine started the trade show to educate people about the health benefits of marijuana.
Patients say pot changed their life. “My doctor said I was a nut for trying medical marijuana, they said the tumor would come back and kill me within the first year and now I’m a four year survivor. This is truly a medicine. We are helping a lot of people. We have cancer patients, aids patients, pain patients getting off from opiate addiction. There’s a lot of good stuff happening in this industry,” Frank Lumay, patient, said.
