Maine Alcohol Bureau to Have Marijuana Oversight

Category: News | Posted on Wed, February, 1st 2017 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Latest on the first day of legalized marijuana in Maine (all times local):

3:10 p.m.

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

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, January, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — It's a green Monday in Maine.

The first tangible results of state voters' decision to legalize marijuana are being felt as possession and home growth of marijuana becomes legal. Voters narrowly passed the ballot question in November, and the waiting period between the vote and legalization has expired.

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.

Vote Hemp: 2016 States Report Documenting Legislative Progress

Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON, DC – Vote Hemp, the nation’s leading grassroots hemp advocacy organization working to change state and federal laws to allow commercial hemp farming, has released its 2016 States Report. The report documents state-by-state progress of hemp legislation passed in 2016, reported acreage of hemp grown, identifies states with active hemp pilot farming programs and advocacy work the organization has lead over the past year. To view the complete Vote Hemp 2016 States Report, please visit: http://www.votehemp.com/state/PDF/VH-State-Support-Report-2016.pdf.

“We’ve seen enormous progress this past year toward returning this historic crop to American farmlands, with 15 states that grew hemp and 30 colleges & universities that participated in hemp pilot program research in 2016,” said Eric Steenstra, President of Vote Hemp. “U.S. consumers constitute the largest market for hemp products in the world–the demand is here for full scale hemp farming across the country. But growing the crop remains restricted at the federal level, due to outdated and misguided drug policy. We need Congress to take action this year to legalize this crop, so that American farmers can take advantage of the enormous economic opportunity industrial hemp presents.”
