In other news, we have at the store a petition for you to sign regarding LD 141, “An Act To Promote Highway Safety by Restricting the Use of Marijuana and Possession of an Open Marijuana Container in a Vehicle.Link to full text here

To summarize, we believe this bill infringes on the rights of cannabis users and does nothing to protect public safety. It allows law enforcement to ticket for 100% legal cannabis – based on a broad definition of an open container. It is detrimental to medical patients and how they access a legal product and will leave the door open for unlawful searches.

We will be presenting petitions at the floor debate of this bill in the Maine House of Representatives. If you’d like to contact your state rep with your concerns about this bill, you can find out how here: Maine State Reps by Town

This bill defines an “Open container” as: a receptacle that contains any amount of marijuana or consumable products made from marijuana and has a broken seal or a receptacle from which the contents have been partially removed.

This bill does nothing to “promote safety” yet further promotes the stigma surrounding this therapeutic plant.
