At a ask of Governor Paul LePage, Maine legislatures returned to a collateral city to residence a newly ratified recreational pot and rewrite a stream law.

The revised pot check was due by a bipartisan row of legislatures. The check will concede Maine communities to “opt-in” to sales of recreational marijuana, and supplement an dig taxation to a 10 percent sales tax. The new law is approaching to go into effect in 2019, if it is not vetoed by a governor.

LePage, along with Republican House Minority Leader Ken Fredette, requested sales of recreational pot be behind until 2019. They did not ask for any other changes to be done to a stream law. Although a state voted to legalize recreational cannabis in Nov 2016, sales were not to start until Feb 2017. The administrator has slowed a course and recreational sales are still not legal.

Originally, LePage called lawmakers behind to Augusta for a special event to solve issues in a food government law and finalize a appropriation for a Maine Office of Geographic Information Systems.
Maine Congress voted to make beef and ornithology free from a food government law.
