Marijuana in Maine

Medical marijuana was legalized in Maine in 1999, and dispensaries were approved in 2009. Patients were able to access marijuana from dispensaries in 2011. in the November 2016 election, residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana, but a regulatory structure for commercial sales has not yet been established.

Local authorities can develop zoning restrictions that marijuana dispensaries must adhere to, and they can limit the number of dispensaries operating in their jurisdictions. However, they can not ban medical marijuana dispensaries.




Children under the age of 18 can use medical marijuana in Maine with one doctor’s certification and a parent or guardian acting in the role of caretaker.
