House Rejects Bill To Legalize Marijuana

The Cannabis Creative Conference, to be held in Portland, is an event  given from the cannabis industry for cannabis businesses.

MAINE:  The Maine House of Representatives has rejected a bill that seeks to legalize marijuana for recreational use in the state.
