More About Cannabis in Maine

Maine is one of America's more progressive states when it comes to cannabis legalization. In November 1999, voters passed Question 2 of the ballot initiative with a 62% approval. The state also passed adult use laws with the 2016 Marijuana Legalization Act.
Adult use sales had been expected to begin in spring 2020 but were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first recreational dispensaries are now open as of October 9th, 2020, but there are still huge advantages to having a medical marijuana certification in Maine.
Maine's medical marijuana patients receive:Exemption from the Maine's 10% excise tax on marijuana sales, The right to cultivate 6 plants instead of just 3, And access to Maine's massive network of dedicated MMJ caregivers.
There are no required qualifying conditions to get an MMJ card in Maine, so the decision is entirely up to your physician.

    How to Become a Patient Caregiver in Maine

    Adults age 21 and over can apply to become a certified caregiver. Caregivers can assist as many patients as their limited harvest allows. State law states that applications and renewals will be answered within 30 days of their receipt. Approved applicants will receive their card within 5 days of approval. 

    Unlike patients, caregiver registration is mandatory with the MMMP in most cases. The only exception is when a caregiver and patient live in the same home. To qualify, a caregiver must adhere to a criminal background check and fingerprint screening. Application fees vary depending on the number of plants grown, ranging in price from $240 to $1,200.

      More About Maine

      Located at the northern end of the East Coast, Maine is the 9th least populated state in the union. It's bordered by New Hampshire, the Atlantic Ocean and Canada's Quebec and New Brunswick. Known for its amazing seafood dishes, beautiful mountains and jagged coastline, there's always something to do no matter where you live in the state. 

      Residents can catch a game of hockey with the Maine Mariners, or explore scenic Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park. Those interested in a little more down-to-earth fun head over to Old Orchard Beach, New England's version of the Santa Monica Pier--or perhaps that's the other way around! 

      Maine became the fourth state to pass medical marijuana legislation when voters approved Question 2 in 1999. The state of 1.3 million people has seen much legislative opposition, mainly coming from former Governor Paul LePage, over the years. That said, the medical market has not been the focus of the hurdles.

      Instead, lawmakers have spent the past two decades expanding and revising the program. Then-Gov. LePage made efforts to upend the program but only led to a more robust market, including giving doctors the ability to recommend cannabis to patients even if their condition did not make the qualifying condition list. 

      Despite the hurdles, the medical market sold $29.1 million in cannabis products during 2019, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. It expects to sell $23.3 million in 2024 as the adult use market grows.
