The possession, personal cultivation and state-sanctioned distribution of cannabis would be legal for those 21 and older in Maine, if a bill filed this week by Representative Diane Russell is passed into law.
H.P. 935 would allow those 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of cannabis, and to cultivate up to six plants at a private residence. Cannabis retail outlets would be authorized to distribute the plant to those 21 and older, with the retail outlets being supplied by state-licensed cultivation centers. Cannabis would be taxed at 10%.
