Both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are legal in Maine. Medical dispensaries in Maine are currently open for business for qualified patients, while the opening of recreational dispensaries has been delayed.

Recreational marijuana is a bit tricky at this time. While Maine voters passed the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana in November of 2016, the necessary laws and regulations have not yet been established for recreational dispensaries or sales just yet. In fact, a moratorium for implementing the laws has been put in place until at least February 2018.

While the sale and taxation of recreational cannabis still needs to be ironed out, adults 21 years of age or older are allowed to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower and cultivate up to six mature plants.
