Maine State Rep. Diane Russell on Tax and Regulate Marijuana Bill


Lots has been happening in the push to fully decriminalize, tax and regulate marijuana for recreational purposes. Today, people flooded the state house to educate lawmakers on the importance of protecting and improving Maine's medical marijuana laws. I've already been hearing from my colleagues that they want to learn more!

Also, MPBN's MaineWatch episode this week included a segment on my upcoming bill to tax and regulate marijuana. You can watch it on PBS tomorrow evening at 9:00 p.m. or Sunday at 5:00 p.m.

I've been buried in rewrite edits for the bill, meeting with folks to garner constructive feedback and focusing my time on strengthening the bill. Once the edits are finished, I'll be working to sign up co-sponsors for the bill - several have already committed.

Finally - we will be announcing details for a press conference and rally in the near future to properly announce the bill. Thank you again for all your support and encouragement; it is coming together!

~Rep. Diane Russell
