The States of Cannabis: Round-up of Cannabis News from Around the Country

A roundup of cannabis news in the states:

Maine: Lawmakers this week wrapped up efforts to rewrite the state’s marijuana laws for adult-use recreational sales and for medical use. The legislative outline of Maine’s adult-use cannabis market was finalized last month when lawmakers overturned a gubernatorial veto and paved the way for adult-use sales in 2019. And late Tuesday night, lawmakers adopted a sweeping medical cannabis reform bill that now sits on Gov. Paul LePage’s desk for review. Portland Press Herald

Vermont: Possession of small amounts of cannabis will be legal in Vermont in less than five months. But don’t take it out on Lake Champlain. That’s federal water, and it’s still illegal there. Burlington Free Press

Oklahoma: The Sooner State just legalized medical marijuana. But in a state where half the people say they own guns, there could be a conflict, according to the Tulsa World.  As long as cannabis remains a Schedule 1 drug under the federal narcotic classification system, the ATF says medical marijuana users can’t legally buy guns.  Tulsa World
