"To have a senator that represents a large portion of Portland, where an average of 80 percent of voters supported the initiative, is kind of disheartening,”

I don't think it's that simple. I think when the senator got to his office he likely got a call from some powerful, wealthy people involved with Big Pharma (pills), Defense (Cops) and/or Prison business. I doubt he wanted to go against his people but when other people threaten your position or more, I don't blame him. "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" Wizard of Oz

CLOVIS gib me sum of wat ur smokin'. There are a few lots for sale in some counties here you can buy land for under 1000 bucks an acre but may be zoned "recreation&quo t; no building on lot. Dispensories and corporate greed keeps pot illegal here. Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine also kept it out.

Wow have you been to Maine? You could grow an acre of weed and no-one would know it is so in the boonies. I can see why they wont recrealize it. But on a lighter note I hear they are giving away land with the stipulation it will be used for tourism!
