If Maine’s proposed social cannabis regulations become law, it could allow consumers to purchase cannabis from dispensaries through a drive-thru window.

The social cannabis committee’s bill would also allow consumers to purchase cannabis through the internet and set up a 20 percent sales tax rate for social cannabis. The state already allows alcohol purchases through drive-thru windows. 

“If Maine allows it for alcohol, we see no reason why it shouldn’t be allowed for cannabis, the safer substance, so long as Maine puts in place reasonable regulations to protect public safety and the consumer,” David Boyer, Maine chapter director of the Marijuana Policy Project. “The voters want it regulated and taxed like alcohol. The rules should be the same.”

The bill will be discussed in a public hearing on Sep. 26 and will be considered by the Legislature next month if the committee approves it.
