New medical pot rules

 State officials have announced changes to Maine's medical marijuana program.
 
Starting January 5th, medical providers who recommend patients use the drug will be required to issue patient identification cards. That's currently done by the state and the new system will save time and money. The caregivers will also enter information about the patients in an online program, but officials say that information is erased as soon as the card in printed.  The special paper the cards are printed on is also designed to cut down on fraud. Some people have apparently been printing their own cards and using them at multiple dispensaries to acquire additional marijuana. Program administrators say the changes will help take the state out of the doctor/patient relationship.
