Portland, Maine, voters on Tuesday approved legalizing recreational marijuana for residents 21 and older. The measure, Question 1, passed with about 70 percent of the vote, making Portland the first East Coast city to legalize recreational pot. Adult residents of Portland -- Maine's largest city -- may possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana under the referendum. The new measure does not permit the recreational purchase or sale of marijuana, nor does it permit its use in public spaces like parks.
So, medical marijuana is already legal in Portland. I think this means that people are now able grow plants, maybe. I also think it is the first step in a campaign to fully regulate it, like alcohol. This new law does not seem to change much, except the perception the people of Portland may have towards marijuana
I am sorry but I do not completely understand. This means that you cannot buy or sell marijuana in Portland, Maine, but can smoke it? is that what this means?
