News Center Maine reports Voters in Portland, Maine will vote in November whether to remove the city’s cap on cannabis businesses. The new measure for November comes as a result of the state reaching a legal agreement with cannabis business that sued the state for preventing officials from enforcing an industry resident requirement. Many cannabis advocates campaigned for the ballot and collected more than 2,400 petition signatures; 1,500 were required. The initiative will be read during an Aug. 3 City Council meeting, with a public hearing on the measure expected on Aug. 31.
