Janet Mills signs bill to allow recreational marijuana sales in Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine Gov. Janet Mills signed a bill Thursday setting up a legal framework for the sale of recreational marijuana to adults as early as next year.

Her office said Thursday that the state’s Office of Marijuana Policy plans to accept applications for licenses by the end of 2019. The Democratic governor said her administration has worked quickly to implement the voter-approved law since she took office earlier this year.

The state’s voters chose to legalize both the use and sale of recreational marijuana among adults in November 2016, but months of delays and political squabbles have slowed the implementation of a commercial industry. The state now has a legal road map for marijuana to arrive in stores as soon as early 2020.

State officials say retail adult use marijuana could arrive in stores as soon as early 2020. Maine already has legal medical marijuana.

1. Um, that's "Gov. Mills". Headline writers for newspapers should know better.

Even when elected officials are comfortable w/informal address, press should respect titles.
