A Maine lawmaker has introduced legislation to legalize cannabis delivery in the state.
State Rep. Joseph Perry’s bill would allow certain dispensaries to deliver adult-use cannabis to customers’ homes, a service that as only been allowed in the medical market, according a local WGME report.
“Rather than have people drive very long distances to go to an adult-use store or turn to the illegal market, I think it makes sense to allow them to purchase it legally and have it delivered to their homes,” Perry told the news outlet.
Perry’s legislation would allow adult-use retailers to deliver to customers regardless of whether their local municipalities have approved adult-use stores, WGME reported.
Lawmakers could hold a workshop on the bill in the coming days, according to the news outlet.
