After long pause periods, Marijuana buyers in Maine will presumably have the option to purchase these items in retail stores by March 2020. Voters approved to legalize Marijuana for sale for adults in November 2016. In which the path to realizing it has been extended and full of ups and downs. But a fundamental law passed by the Legislature has already come into effect. David Heidrich, a spokesman for the office, said,
“Maine Marijuana Policy Office is in a position to finish final approval of the regulations.”
The initiative approved by lawmakers made minor changes to the Maine Marijuana Legalization Act necessary for the marijuana office to support the regulations, which are expected to do so within two months. That means that you will be able to accept applications from retail sellers by the end of 2019, Heidrich said.
The state will need time to process applications. Besides, retailers will also have to legalize Marijuana for sale by local governments. Still, the state expects that by March 15, there will already be revenue from this concept, Heidrich said. How quickly we approve the applications will depend on how complete they are, he said. He also mentioned
“We will not know until we receive applications. We may have requested from someone who has everything ready and has a municipality ready to give it local authorization.”
The road to marijuana approval in Maine has been filled with high and low points, which were supposed to happen. The fight involves recruiting leading guides and the gradual move towards legalization by Governor Paul Lopez‘s resistance.
In any case, the result has been a procedure that will eventually ensure overall well-being and safety, said Scott Gagnon. He led a crusade against legitimation and since then assumed an urgent job in a state commission on weed.
