Abstract

The Maine Senate on May 31 killed a bill that would have allowed cancer patients and people with AIDS to claim a medical defense in court if they were found possessing marijuana. The Maine House rejected the same bill in early May. Brian Clark, 22, a hemophiliac with AIDS and one of the founders of The Maine Coalition for Medical Cannabis, is angry that the bill didn't pass, saying that marijuana helps with nausea and stabilizes his weight.
