Marijuana moratorium extension expected to happen this week

AUGUSTA - The moratorium on retail sales of marijuana is scheduled to expire on Thursday.

But that doesn't mean you'll be able to buy marijuana legally anytime soon.

 

State lawmakers are also expected to meet Thursday to vote on whether to extend the moratorium until April 18.

 

The committee in charge of coming up with new rules for the marijuana industry are still completing their work and the moratorium will give them more time.

 

Both the house and senate are considering the extension this week.

 

Maine residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana last November.
