Quotes

The state board sought the reprimand and fines against Ortiz because he failed to "create and maintain adequate records and for the manner and location of his medical marijuana clinics."
"We knew that we wanted to use ODARA because of its predictive accuracy of 77 percent. So really, it's the best method out there at this point ... It's also easy to use, quick to use" Batsie said, adding that the assessment uses information that police already gather during the course of their investigations
"The whole premise of this day is to bring hope to the city of Bangor ," Bledsoe said Thursday. "Even if it's just for one day, we want people to feel good about themselves. If they feel good about themselves, they may take a step in the right direction."
"Demographics show a migration from other counties to York and Cumberland," he said. "Maine has a stagnant population that is falling behind other New England states."
