On Friday, Maine’s regulatory body announced it will begin recreational sales on October 9, 2020. This announcement comes nearly four years after voters approved a legalization ballot measure in 2016. According to regulatory officials, the first round of cannabis business licenses will be issued on September 8, giving licensees about a month to begin harvesting, processing, and ensuring quality control for their marijuana products. The state’s Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) said it had planned to launch retail sales in April, but that timeline was pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak.
