    Legalization Ballot measure may be back

    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- Maine's top election official says he's moving forward with another review of signatures submitted in support of a marijuana referendum.

    Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap announced Wednesday he won't appeal a judge's decision that revived the referendum proposal.

    The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol had disputed Dunlap's rejection of 26,779 signatures because the signature of the notary didn't match the signature on file in Augusta. A judge reversed his decision, saying the requirement of identical signatures was unreasonable.

    Dunlap said the new review will be conducted "as expeditiously as possible." He said a new determination will be made "pursuant to the court order."

    I've realized most young people in Maine have no idea how good they have it with weed laws. Legalize it first in NH or CT or somewhere that already has shitty growing laws.


      #3 love maine very much...
      SML..iff mi spellin and centances suk and yoo don't lyke itt too fukkin bad;/?.....I once was asked what I would say upon getting to the gates of heaven??? m/r is a visitors badge an option??? I would like a few drinks at the bar... for real legalization not sum the weed or kiss my wont be getting my tax money..


        I am not from Maine basically, but have visited the place once and just loved the place.


          I've been waiting to here more on this. Good to here they are moving forward. KONY, they are going to start in the state with the most chance of pulling it off first. And ME has had a medical law the longest out here, longer than most states in the country in fact. I agree the laws need to change in those other places as well, but to exclude legalization here is silly.

            NOOOO to RMLA legalization bill

            The "legalize maine" bill was bait-and-switched with this awful, manipulative, highly regulated highly taxed "act to regulate marijuana like alcohol" that sounds like the complete OPPOSITE of "legalize marijuana" NOT regulate it like alcoho, i despise the name of the bill even.l. NO NO NO, VOTE NO, NO. like stonedtrout always says you aren't getting my tax money, I will gladly pay the modest fee to be a medical patient and I am always compliant in my personal medical grows. Our Medical Program needs NO help. Maine is fine the way it is.


              Damn them anyway!! Well, folks will keep on pressing for a better statute. Don't give up hope. Power in numbers!
