A group that wants to make it legal to possess marijuana in Maine has unveiled details of a proposal that also would allow adults to grow pot in their homes, protect much of the marijuana retail market for small farmers and permit marijuana social clubs that it says could provide a boost to the state’s tourism industry.
The Portland Press Herald published a full report on the efforts of Legalize Maine, a newly formed political action committee.
Legalize Maine calls its plan “a home-grown effort” to legalize marijuana in Maine. The group’s organizer, Paul McCarrier, said that its proposal can help revive the state’s rural economy.
