On Monday, Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap announced that the ballot initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol will appear as Ques10985909_566442143496233_947244275936798915_ntion 1 on the ballot.

Question 1 reads:

“Do you want to allow the possession and use of marijuana under state law by persons who are at least 21 years of age, and allow the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, testing, and sale of marijuana and marijuana products subject to state regulation, taxation and local ordinance?”

Campaign manager David Boyer is confident in the initiative’s success and is pleased with Question 1’s wording:

“The wording of our ballot question is far more important than the order in which it will appear. It conveys to voters that the cultivation and sale of marijuana for adult use will be subject to regulation, taxation, and local control. We are pleased, as those themes comprise the core of our initiative and help explain the benefits of ending marijuana prohibition. Residents of Maine will be hearing a lot more about regulation, taxation, and local control as we spend the next four months encouraging them to vote ‘yes’ on Question 1.”

MPP supports the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol and its efforts to encourage voters to vote “Yes” on Question 1 in November.
