Soon, voters may have another chance to weigh in on the matter.
Recently, one of Maine’s well-known Marijuana advocates was acquitted, convincing a jury his pot is for medicinal purposes.
For the first time, the court sided with the defendant. In this case, Donald Christen of Madison agreeing that his pot was being cultivated and furnished for medical use.
In Maine, with a doctor’s note not a prescription, a patient can legally posess 2 and a half ounces of pot for medical use.
Christian wants to see the amount increased to 3 pounds, and to drop the doctor’s consent requirement.
Christian plans on starting a petition next year to bring to the voters to enact those changes.
