Maine Alcohol Bureau to Have Marijuana Oversight
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Latest on the first day of legalized marijuana in Maine (all times local):
Maine Gov. Paul LePage says he’s using an executive order to shift oversight of licensing and enforcement relating to legal marijuana.
LePage sparred with state lawmakers about who should have authority over marijuana sales in Maine. He gave the authority to the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations on Monday.
The order is an outgrowth of a row LePage had with lawmakers last week about his desire to move oversight from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to the Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations.
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em: Weed is officially legal in Maine
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — It's a green Monday in Maine.

Contentious aspects linger, including what rules should govern businesses that will sell marijuana, such as retail stores and social clubs. The Legislature has been hammering out those details, and they will take months to fully craft, meaning it will be months before marijuana businesses open in the state.
