The Coastal Packet: Legal pot on its way

Legal pot on its way

WCSH - After months of opposing Question 1, Maine Governor Paul LePage said Tuesday that he has signed off on the legalization of recreational marijuana.

The governor said if the proclamation came across his desk then he likely signed it...the highly anticipated announcement was made during his conservative radio talk show on WVOM.

The Yes On One team that wrote the legislation said Mainers will likely be allowed to use and give up to two-and-a-half ounces of pot by the end of January 2017.

Under the new law adults, 21 years or older will be allowed to have 2.5 ounces of marijuana and grow up to six plants.
