Sec. Polanowicz On The Health Of Our State
We’re joined by the Secretary of Health and Human Services for Massachusetts, John Polanowicz, to discuss everything from controlling the state’s healthcare costs to implementing the usage of medical marijuana.
John Palonowicz, Secretary of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services.
CommonHealth, “The rules will emphasize that to prescribe marijuana, a doctor must be involved in a patient’s continuing care, thus avoiding the pot equivalent of “pill mills.” Signs will need to be low-key, not neon. Edible marijuana will be allowed, but cannot be marketed in candy-like forms alluring to children.”
