A Bill to Make Pot Legal in Maine
There is a bill that has been introduced to make marijuana legal for adults in Maine. It includes a plan to license and tax marijuana.
The feeling of the backers of this bill is that marijuana should be sold by legitimate, taxpaying businesses and in a regulated market. If Maine were to pass this, we would be the third state to make marijuana legal for adults 21 and older and establish a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed like alcohol.
If this bill makes it and if state lawmakers approve the bill, it will go to voters in the upcoming November election.
