Good news for all you potheads out there! This past Tuesday, voters in Portland, Maine approved legalizing recreational marijuana for residents 21 and older. The measure passed with about 70 percent of the vote, making Portland the first East Coast city to legalize recreational pot. Residents of Portland (Maine‘s largest city) may possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana under the referendum. Although it does not override state or federal laws, the referendum is seen as largely symbolic because the passage could spark further efforts to legalize marijuana in the state.In addition, the measure does not permit the recreational purchase or sale of marijuana, nor does it permit its use in public spaces.
