Oversight Board Listens to Patients

Last week, the Therapeutic Cannabis Medical Oversight Board (TCMOB) spent two hours listening to patients’ perspectives on the program. Thanks to all who spoke at the meeting, both in-person and via Zoom!

This was a great learning experience for all who attended and observed. Ray Duckler wrote a column on the listening session for the Concord Monitor, and Zach Huffman published an article at Grownin.com. Both articles featured comments from Prime ATC’s Matt Simon in support of allowing home cultivation (a policy change requested by several patients).

“[I]t should never be a crime for patients who try to take care of their medical needs.”

Several Prime ATC staff observed the meeting, and we greatly appreciated the opportunity to hear feedback from patients. We are constantly trying to improve our products and services and make them more affordable, and we understand that patients are relying on us to serve their therapeutic cannabis needs.

If you were not able to speak at the listening session, you can share your thoughts with the oversight board via email: dhhs.mobtcp@dhhs.nh.gov.

Many thanks to the oversight board for scheduling this session and listening to patients!
