A congresswoman from Maine wants to make sure her constituents know how to successfully buy marijuana on the state’s first day of legal recreational sales on Friday. “Starting tomorrow, recreational marijuana goes on sale in Maine!” Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) tweeted on Thursday. She urged followers to read a recent Portland Press Herald article about what people should know before they go to a new cannabis dispensary. Pingree has helped lead efforts in Congress to pressure the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to create a system of legal sales of CBD products. For example, she is a leading co-sponsor of a bill that would require the FDA to allow cannabidiol as a dietary supplement. She has also pressed FDA officials on CBD issues during House hearings.
