The Maine Department of Education this morning felt compelled to respond to a pressing concern.

The state agency issued a "Clarification of Medical Use of Marijuana Act," explaining that, although Maine law allows the use of marijuana by qualified patients, the use of marijuana is still prohibited on school grounds.

In fact, the question should not be a new one at all. Maine law has allowed the medical use of marijuana by qualified patients since 1999. What's new about the law, of course, is the newly devised system of medical marijuana dispensaries set up to distribute the marijuana.
