Maine is the stomping ground for the horror stories of Stephen King. That’s all I know. Wait, I think Angela Lansbury fictional hometown of Cabot Cove is based in Maine. Maine is near a cluster of legal states and is a legalized state as well. The Maine Medical Marijuana Act was passed all the way back in 2009 and was followed up with the legalization of recreational for those who are 21 years old and up. This was all by popular vote, but Delta-8 THC remains to be a hit or miss with legalized states—mainly recreational due to the fear of a competing market. Everyone seems so pleasant in Maine even though it’s the setting for Pet Semetary, or maybe these terrifying stories made it all the easier to legalize. Thanks, Mr. King, for unintentionally scaring people into legalization with your daunting tales. So, what does Maine think of Delta-8 THC. Of course, they’re fine with it. Delta-8 THC is federally and state legal in Maine. These revisions are input in Titles 7.
