Maine Currents 9/7/16

Producer/Host: Amy Browne
Studio Engineer: Joel Mann

Our multi-partisan panel of area residents returns to debate Question 1 on Maine’s ballot this November (“Do you want to allow the possession and use of marijuana under state law by persons who are at least 21 years of age, and allow the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, testing, and sale of marijuana and marijuana products subject to state regulation, taxation and local ordinance?”).

Panelists: Renee Trust, Dave Gulya, Betsy Garrold and Tim Wilson talk about the issue with proponent Alysia Melnick, Esq., Political Director for “Yes on 1 Yes to Regulate and Tax Marijuana in Maine”. Don Christen, found of the Maine Vocals, joins us to talk about why some supporters of marijuana legalization do not support Question 1. Listeners call in and join the discussion.
