In yesterday’s election eight out of nine statewide cannabis initiatives came out victorious. Among them, Maine’s Question 1 stands out as being the most progressive.
Prior to this election four states legalized cannabis, all of them with a one ounce limit. Yesterday’s successful initiatives in California, Massachusetts and Nevada adopted this same limit. Maine, however, allows for the possession of 250% this amount; 2.5 ounces. This clearly demonstrates that voters – at least in some states – are willing to accept a limit higher than one ounce.
