Medical : Yes

Adult Use : Yes

Noteworthy Information : Voters approved adult-use legalization in November 2016. The legislature has delayed implementation dates. On May 2, 2018, the Legislature overrode the Governor’s veto of LD 1719, An Act to Implement a Regulatory Structure for Adult Use Marijuana. The law will facilitate “the development and administration of a regulated marketplace in the State for adult use marijuana and the regulation of the personal use of marijuana and the home cultivation of marijuana for personal adult use pursuant to the Marijuana Legalization Act.” Once a consultant is hired to assist with the rulemaking process, the Department of Administrative and Financial Services estimates that it will take at least nine months to draft, finalize and implement the rulemaking process that would be required to establish an adult-use marijuana program. The medical program has existed in some form since 1998. A law passed in June 2018 eliminates the cap on how much marijuana can be sold in medical dispensaries, authorizes municipal control, and now anyone with a medical certification from their healthcare provider can purchase medical cannabis.
