Legalize Maine accepts the challenge to a debate in Farmington tomorrow. The panelists will be Hillary Lister, Dennis Hammock, and Glenn Lewisfrom No on One. Representing Legalize Maine will be Roger Paul Birks, former Board Member of Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine, Chairman of Legalize Maine and co-author of Question One.
We look forward to presenting our case to the people of Maine. On our own, we would never have initiated this ballot proposal. It was a response to the Marijuana Policy Projects determination to put an initiative on the ballot in Maine in 2016.
Polling for marijuana legalization in Maine was close to 60%, which meant whatever language got placed on the ballot would pass. If we sat by and did nothing, the original MPP language would be what we are voting on this November. Question One is the alternative.
We are proud of our support for traditional artisan cannabis farmers and the general public’s demand for an end to prohibition. We will present that case in the debate. The event will be streamed live and we hope you can join us in person or online. If not it will be available for viewing later.
