I received the following disheartening alert out of Maine today, see below:
If yesterday’s MLI committee decision stands, Maine adults will have to wait another five years until they can enjoy the same privileges afforded to those who consume alcohol.
This decision was made with LESS THAN HALF of the MLI committee’s members present. The decision encourages tourists and otherwise law-abiding adults to break the law and consume marijuana in public.
Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, adults will be trusted enough to consume marijuana socially as soon as this summer. We can’t lag behind other states in New England; please message the committee today.
