Maine Lawmakers Won’t Put Marijuana Referendum on Ballot

June 11th

AUGUSTA, ME – If Maine residents want to legalize marijuana via the popular vote, they may have to do it themselves. Last Friday, a bill that would have called for a referendum on marijuana legalization fell four votes short in the House.

Then, on Monday, the Senate “placed the bill in legislative files,” officially killing the bill.

The bill, LD 1229, sponsored by Rep. Diane Russell (D-Portland), was a detailed tax, regulate, and legalize marijuana measure when first introduced.

Maine Marijuana Legalization Initiative Falls Short by 4 Votes on House Floor; Senate to Vote Soon

June 10th

AUGUSTA, ME — On Friday, marijuana reformers recorded the closest vote for a legalization measure on the floor of a state legislature in recent history.

Rep. Diane Russell’s LD 1229, which would place the question of legalization before Maine voters this fall, was narrowly rejected in a 71 to 67 vote. We only managed to get this vote so close because of the outpouring of support via phone and email that Representatives heard from their constituents. Never doubt the power that making you opinion known to your elected officials has a very quantifiable effect.

Legalize-Maine-2013The good news is that the fight for legalization in Maine still isn’t over for this year. Representative Russell just informed us that she intends to continue the fight for legalization to the floor of the State Senate.  The Senate will vote on LD 1229 as soon as Monday.

Maine residents, this is our final chance for this year, we need to give it everything we have. There is strong support for this legislation in. . . . . READ MORE
