Lawmakers on Monday approved a 78-page bill establishing regulations for the legal marijuana market, with the House voting 81-50 and the Senate voting 22-9. LD 1650 culminated seven months of work by the Marijuana Legalization Implementation Committee and spells out in great detail the rules for licensing and regulating marijuana producers, processors and retail establishments. It also sets a 10% sales tax on adult use marijuana and will delay marijuana social clubs until the summer of 2019. But the House tally fell short of the two-thirds threshold needed to override a possible veto by Gov. Paul LePage, whose alternative bill, rejected by lawmakers, would have extended the existing moratorium on the voter-approved marijuana law until 2019.
How soon should the moratorium be lifted on commercially producing, processing and selling adult marijuana in Maine?
