applicant drug-testing policy, according to a January 30 report on the legal website Lexology.com.
Separate provisions permitting adults to possess and grow limited quantities of cannabis took effect early last year after action taken by the legislature.

I don’t regret the Benjamins I threw at the Maine marijuana campaign…
What this means is that another state can empower employees to take their employees to court over off the job marijuana consumption… And in Maine the legislation was vetoed! This is great news for states like Texas that can expand mj employment protections as weak legislation is expanded into effective medical marijuana policy.

Maine needs to get it together! Vermont may be online before they are! Time for Lepage to GO!! He has been in office WAY too long.

Senator Rand Paul with Stephen Colbert:
In case anyone missed it. What was said about marijuana policy and the tax bill was fascinating and foreshadowing.
I never found myself so passionately agreeing and disagreeing with Libertarians so simultaneously than I do now.

Let’s not miss this huge step forward: anti-discrimination in the workplace. Let’s just say, after decades of being extorted by corporate America into humiliating and degrading drug tests, or paying the price for disobedience, let’s just say I’m looking forward to a little corporate payback.
Thank you, legalization activists, and voters!

LePage has his nose so far up Trump’s ass, I’m betting a dollar he is going to show up in a Mueller indictment eventually. Better than even odds, he’s got Kremlin ties, I would say, just based on the fact that he is so much like Trump’s “mini-me!”

Commerce in a free society works like its democracy, by money flowing back and forth between groups of people that have spending capital. Job creation for others is in maintaining that commerce once it is started. Therefore, in this deficit economy (negative cash flow overall) it is imperative to let democracy have and implement its choices, ask Republican Gov. Paul LePage, who opposed Question 1 and Maine’s regulating the production and retail sales of cannabis to adults. Under a dictator commerce works by taxes and so stays in deficit which eventually bites as overpopulation of a middle class, ask Charles Darwin.

In the mean time Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson managed to enact and smoothly implement the medicinal cannabis patient protection law approved by Arkansas voters on Election Day 2016. Don’t forget that Federal law does not distinguish medicinal from cannabis intended for enjoyment. So why can a former director of the DEA turned Governor of Arkansas get his job done but Gov. LePage refuses because cannabis is on the Feds naughty lists?
