And why a second term with Governor LePage was a big mistake.
Even with Mayhew gone, Governor LePage and other elected officials who enabled her management style and her policies are still around.
This administration is so obsessed with restrictions to social service program access, I’m worried they’re totally missing what recipients actually need in this social and economic climate.
And who the heck is encouraging Commissioner Mayhew to run for governor given her track record at DHHS, which now includes trying to jettison a self-sustaining, tax generating medical marijuana program? Maybe some folks at the department need to find a strain that could help with their thinking.
Cutting access without first understanding the how’s and why’s of what works in conjunction with what other things or the how’s and why’s of what’s not working for whom isn’t helpful.
And I, for one, am hoping the future members of the 128th Legislature are paying attention.
DHHS will consider a petition to add “addiction to opiates and drugs derived from chemical synthesis” to the list of conditions that may be treated with medical marijuana.
