Ready to elevate your time in Vacationland? Grab a lobster bisque and tuck into our list of Maine’s top pot shops.
Beloved for its ragged coastlines and scrumptious seafood, Maine is an East Coast slice of paradise. On the topic of cannabis, however, the constituents of this sometimes sleepy state were among the first to act.
In 1976, Maine decriminalized the possession of small amounts of cannabis, becoming only the third state to take such an action. Unfortunately, it would take another 22 years before voters would legalize medical marijuana in 1999.
Finally, in 2016, voters passed the Act to Legalize Marijuana, which the state legislature affirmed as law two years later. After much delay, Maine dispensaries were finally allowed to commence with selling recreational cannabis products on October 9, 2020.
