Id say Maine is leaps and bounds above cali in the home growing front.

If my wife and I became caregivers we could each grow for 6 patients, or 72 flowering plants, 144 veg plants and unlimited seedlings... Although I doubt anyone would want to go over 99 plants total...
That's considerably better than here in CO, but we make do. They're currently trying to squeeze all home growers down to 12 plants per household. I doubt it will pass constitutional muster. It's shitty on the part of the legislature because caregivers don't put out enough product to budge the needle in terms of total production. I think they're more nervous about protecting the cash cow of legalization from the feds with Sessions in charge. He's just itching for a plausible excuse & some of the large busts of supposedly interstate operations make it look like CO "isn't doing enough" or "can't control it" or some such bullshit.

Virginia may well legalize soon, as well-

Legal pot is pricey in CO. They want to squeeze out the black market. Even 12 plants at six grows per year could yield a tax-free income that would be appetizing to many.

Legalizing only affects the people who do not partake now because it is illegal. With legalization they might buy legally and get into it. For the rest of us, it doesn't really change anything except the go to jail part for selling / growing. People who smoke pot prior to legalization already have their sources and preferences . Why would they pay a higher price to go in a pot shop for legal weed that may not be their preference?

On the go to jail part, I can't speak for other states, but here in Massachusetts small growers are not included in the legalization. So big growers can buy their way into the licensing game and the little guys are still going to jail for taking a few of the bread crumbs off the table. The cops and the taxman will happily support the rich guys. Imagine if they tried to pull that shit on small farmers who sell their corn and tomatoes at a farm stand.

TRUTH!
Those same people will quit just as soon as they feel threatened as well!

While oppressing the rest, even to their own demise.
Not much is really changing.

Another Democrat governor candidate for legalization

By The Associated Press


MADISON, Wis. — Democratic candidate for governor Matt Flynn says if Wisconsin voters want to legalize marijuana, he’s all for it.


Flynn on Tuesday called for the Republican-controlled Legislature to put a non-binding referendum on the November 2018 ballot asking if there’s support for the legalization and sale of marijuana.


If it would pass, Flynn says as governor he would push the Legislature to follow through.
There have been small signs of movement in the current Legislature among supporters of legalizing marijuana.

I wish him well with his efforts. He has an uphill fight with a GOP gerrymandered assembly.

Any time the people wish to make themselves be heard over the bought and paid for, an up hill fight is going to be had no matter which party runs things.

This is what it's all about. Because the rich can buy anything they want, anti trust laws, ethics, honest news, small business vs walmart, other laws EPA, education, medical, manufacturing vs china, pot legalization vs big pharma and booze, How it should be went out the window. Our shitty government is doing their best to prove capitalism does not work. Behind everything that's screwed up, there's some asshole who sold us out so they could make a buck.

LePage is doing what the republican PACs and check writers like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adleson tell him to do. If he doesn't do it the money stops and it's over for him.
