maine_flag_weed as Smart Object-1 Not all was lost last night. While it’s true that Mainers rejected a referendum for gay marriage, they did manage to support a medical weed initiative that makes it a lot easier for patients to get their doctor-prescribed medicine and for the state to tax those purchases. The new measure “allows for a statewide system of storefront distribution centers,” reports the Bangor Daily News. Of all the votes cast, 293,694 were in favor and 207,419 opposed making Maine the 4th state to adopt a progressive cannabis program along with California, New Mexico, and Rhode Island. |Bangor Daily News|
