Can you buy recreational marijuana (weed) in Maine?
We get asked this question frequently. Although voters in the State of Maine approved recreational cannabis in November 2016, the State has yet to develop rules and regulations to govern dispensing. There is no legal avenue to purchase cannabis unless you are a qualified medical patient. Under Maine’s existing medical cannabis program, licensed dispensaries and caregivers may continue to sell cannabis to qualified medical patients. It is illegal for individuals under the age of 21 to ingest, possess, grow or gift cannabis.
As of now, there aren’t any legal recreational dispensaries in Maine. This may change, once the state of Maine approves legal sales, provides recreational licenses and policymakers work out implementation.
