Maine: Portland Voters to Decide on Marijuana Legalization in November

July 16th

PORTLAND, ME — Voters in Portland will decide in November if they want to legalize marijuana possession by adults in Maine’s largest city following a public hearing held Monday evening in response  to a citizen-proposed ordinance that would allow those 21 or older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana.

Citizens for a Safer Portland, a coalition of organizations that include the Portland Green Independent Committee, the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine, the Libertarian Party of Maine and the Marijuana Policy Project, collected nearly double the 1,500 signatures that were required to place the matter before the City Council.

Following Monday’s hearing, the City Council had three choices: adopt the ordinance as written, send the referendum to the voters, or offer an alternative proposal alongside the ordinance proposed by residents.

The city council voted 5-1 to send the proposed ordinance to the citywide ballot on November 5 to be decided by the voters.  City Councilor David Marshal, a proponent of marijuana legalization, was the lone vote in favor of adopting the ordinance immediately.

If approved by voters, the initiative would allow adults aged 21 and over to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana with city limits.  Currently, possession of the same amount of marijuana in the state of Maine is a fine-only offense.

The proposal would prohibit smoking of marijuana in public spaces, such as schools and on public transp. . . . . READ MORE

Maine: Public Hearing on Marijuana Legalization Tonight in Portland

July 15th

PORTLAND, ME — A public hearing will be held Monday night by the Portland City Council to discuss legalizing the possession of marijuana by adults within the city.

The hearing is in response  to a citizen-proposed ordinance that would allow adults to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana.

After the hearing is held, the city council will have to either decide whether to adopt the ordinance as written, send the referendum to the voters, or offer an alternative proposal alongside the ordinance proposed by residents.

If the council elects to send the proposal to voters, a vote would have to be scheduled on the referendum within 90 days.

If approved by voters, the initiative would allow adults aged 21 and over to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana with city limits.  Currently, possession of the same amount of marijuana in the state of Maine is a fine-only offense.

The proposal would prohibit smoking of marijuana in public spaces, such as schools and on public transportation,and allow landlords to prohibit it in their apartments.

Proponents of the ordinance gathered over 3,200 signatures to place the proposal on the ballot this year, far more than the 1,500 signatures that were required.

It’s unclear what effect the ordinance would have as it would contradict both s. . . . . READ MORE

Latest Washington Marijuana Rules: Outdoor Grows, Concentrates In; Pot Logo Out

July 5th

OLYMPIA, WA — Washington state was the first in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana use, but image-conscious regulators there think the cannabis-leaf logo designed for state-licensed pot merchandise conveys the wrong impression of the Evergreen State.

Dropping the marijuana leaf as an official state symbol was one of several changes contained in the latest draft of measures proposed by a three-member panel devising new regulations for the state’s nascent marijuana industry.

The proposals, released on Wednesday and containing mostly minor revisions to an earlier plan, included rules governing cultivation, sales and taxation of pot due to take effect when state-licensed retail marijuana stores open next spring.

Washington and Colorado became the only two U.S. states to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use after approval by voters last November, though Washington’s law went into effect first.

Both states, along with 16 others, also have legalized pot for medical purposes. The federal government, however, still classifies cannabis as an illegal substance.

The abandoned pot logo, which was to appear on any recreational-use marijuana or marijuana-infused product sold in th. . . . . READ MORE
