AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s newly appointed committee to implement the medical marijuana law authorized by voters earlier this month will hold its first meeting Dec. 1.

Gov. John Baldacci has also announced the names of the 14 committee members.

They include a mix of state health, business regulation and law enforcement officials, and representatives from medical and legal fields. Four legislators also serve on the panel.

Maine’s the newly authorized law allows licensed dispensaries where marijuana can be distributed to medical patients. Baldacci said the task force would advise him on how to implement the law with safeguards to protect public health and safety.
