Maine Town to Mull Retail Marijuana Ban
JEFFERSON, Maine (AP) — A central Maine town plans to vote to prohibit marijuana retail stores and pot social clubs.
The town of Jefferson is set to hold a public hearing Sept. 25 to discuss the ordinance. The vote is set for the Nov. 7 election.
Maine voters last year approved legalizing the possession, sale and use of recreational marijuana by persons over 21 years of age. Possession of up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana became legal earlier this year but lawmakers pushed back legalization of marijuana sales.
A legislative panel is figuring out a regulatory framework for recreational marijuana sales and licensing.

Another Cannabis Company Sued Over Intellectual Property Infringement
Buds R Us dispensary in Detroit got a letter from Toys “R” Us alerting them to the fact that the toy company is not happy that their names are so similar. In fact, they’re so unhappy that they’re resorting to the traditional corporate modus operandi: threatening to sue for intellectual property infringement.
The owner, whose name is Frankie, thought it was a joke when he received an official letter from the Blank Rome law firm, with his dispensary logo Geoffrey the Giraffe, a beloved Toys “R” Us icon, smoking a fat joint right on the document.
“I thought it was a joke to tell you the truth, like really Toys R Us coming at us, we’re just a small business out here,” said Frankie. “We just thought it would be funny to have a giraffe with a joint smoking.”
This is not the first time a corporation has gone after a cannabis company for similar branding infringement.
