Committee approves marijuana regulation recommendations

Written by

AUGUSTA - Maine is one step closer to having regulations for the state's new marijuana industry.

The legislature's legalization and implementation committee overwhelmingly approved an amended version of a comprehensive bill they've been working on since last year.

 

They've been considering how much marijuana sales should be taxed and how to prevent children from being exposed, among other issues.

 

The measure is now heading to the House and Senate for a vote before the full legislature.
