Initiative Drive Underway to Legalize Cannabis in Three Maine Cities

Initiative Drive Underway to Legalize Cannabis in Three Maine Cities

At a press conference held yesterday Citizens for a Safer Maine launched cannabis legalization initiative drivesMedicalMarijuana2-JCR.jpg in the Maine cities of Lewiston, South Portland and York, with the goal of putting the issue to a vote of the people this November. If placed on the ballot and approved by voters, the initiatives would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis for those 21 and older.

“It is just a simple issue of freedom”, says State Representative Stavros Mendros, a supporter of the move to legalize cannabis.

While advocates push to get these initiatives on the ballot and passed into law, the Marijuana Policy Project – the driving force behind Colorado’s Amendment 64 – is working on a statewide initiative which they hope to put to a vote in 2016.

    It seems to me that these cities are voting on these toothless symbolic “legalization” initiatives, because it’s less effort than getting together and proposing a real solid state wide adult use legalization regime. That’s the lazy way, and it just tells me that Maine’s marijuana advocates are really not serious about real legalization. Even Maine’s medical marijuana industry is on the same side as the prohibitionists, because they have helped squashed statewide legalization in the past and will do so in the future. Maine is the Stoner Against Legalization state of the east just like California is a Stoner Against Legalization state on the west coast. Sorry, Maine, but I can’t take you seriously.
