Even though the vote has passed here in Maine to legalize marijuana until they sort out the particulars about the sale of it you still can’t sell it legally. That said I guess there is no law against giving it away.
Needless to say Maine has one of the toughest drunk driving laws in the country and yet repeat offenders are on the roads killing people every year. So if fines and jail time won't stop them, can technology? Some of our politicians think so.
So here we go…most likely. Now that the votes are counted and the recreational marijuana bill has passed with the voters it sits on the Governor’s desk awaiting a signature but that is just one hurdle.
Growing up in the 70's if there was a kid in my High School who hadn't at least tried pot I'd be amazed. Problem is the idea now is that "so what's the big deal' thinking for today's youth. What we need to factor into our opinion of the safety or use of today's version of pot is that the effect is not the same.
How many people do you know who smoke pot? A few you say? Part of that could be because you live in Penobscot county. In a new study done by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) revealed changing attitudes nationwide towards marijuana usage, and the amount of people who use pot more than once a month.
A shocking new poll reveals that 6 in 10 Mainers say that they know someone who has either used heroin or abused prescribed opiate painkillers within the past five years. I on the other hand right here in the Bangor area I know 4 people within my group of friends affected by opiates including three that have had that person pass away.
Two competing groups, the national Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol and Maine's own Legalize Maine, will now join forces in their quest to collect enough signatures to get the legalization question on the November 2016 ballot.
