MARIJUANA ADVISORY COMMISSION
(28-B MRSA C. 1, SUBCHAPTER 9)
Pursuant to Title 28-B, section 903, subsection 2, the Marijuana Advisory Commission is soliciting public comment regarding: “…contacts between law enforcement officers and citizens following the initiation of an adult use marijuana market in the State that involve the personal adult use of marijuana and marijuana products and the home cultivation of marijuana for personal adult use.” (see http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/statutes/28-B/title28-Bsec903.html).
Please be aware that any comments submitted for this purpose will become public records as submitted, including any details or identifying information contained in those comments. These comments will be appended to the Marijuana Advisory Commission’s annual report to the Legislature, which will be distributed to legislative committees and made publicly available through the Commission’s website (https://legislature.maine.gov/marijuana-advisory-commission).
The Commission has over the past two years conducted this same solicitation and, to date, has received only one comment in response. As a result, the Commission would additionally welcome input from the public regarding how this statutorily-required solicitation of information could be improved or otherwise amended to obtain better data or to better address the concerns for which this solicitation was originally designed.
The Marijuana Advisory Commission will accept public comments for these purposes for a period of 30 days – all comments must be received by Commission staff no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, October 8th, 2021. You can email comments to myself, Daniel.Tartakoff@legislature.maine.gov, or Sam Prawer, Samuel.Prawer@legislature.maine.gov, or may send them by mail to the Office of Policy and Legal Analysis, ATTN: Marijuana Advisory Commission, 13 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333-0013.
