Maine Senate President Statement on Marijuana Moratorium Bill

“The Maine Legislature today took decisive and appropriate action regarding legalized marijuana by voting unanimously for this bill in both the House and Senate. Passage of LD 88 means minors will not be able to use or possess marijuana legally and will prohibit driving while using the drug on Maine roads.  It will also give lawmakers time to carefully craft responsible legislation around legalization to protect the public.

“I am encouraged by today’s vote, but much more work remains to be done on this issue.”
