Cannabis is legal in Maine, and the state has a medical marijuana program. Adults over 21 without a medical card can purchase cannabis from a dispensary.
Maine voters approved Question 5, which enacted the citizen-initiated bill, “An act to establish the Maine Medical Marijuana Act” (LD 975, I.B. 2). The measure created nonprofit dispensaries to help patients get a safe supply of their medicine. It also established a statewide identification card system to protect patients from arrest.
HP0772, LD 1098 (An Act To Ensure Reasonable Accommodations for Children for Whom Medical Marijuana Has Been Recommended), Item 1 allows a medical provider with whom the child has a bonafide relationship to possess and administer marijuana on school grounds.
Recreational sales begin.
The Maine law lists the following medical conditions as qualifiers for a medical cannabis card:

Medical cannabis patients visiting Maine only need to show their state-issued registry identification card, certificate, or other state-issued documentation of status as a patient to purchase medical cannabis while in the state.
Yes, some states with medical marijuana reciprocity honor other states’ medical marijuana cards.
The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:
However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is acceptable) — just that the state’s medical marijuana laws protect you to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and intend to purchase medical marijuana.
The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also accountable to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.
The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing visiting patients to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:
“A school, employer or landlord may not refuse to enroll or employ or lease to or otherwise penalize a person solely for that person’s status as a qualifying patient or a primary caregiver unless failing to do so would put the school, employer or landlord in violation of federal law or cause it to lose a federal contract or funding. This subsection does not prohibit a restriction on the administration or cultivation of marijuana on premises when that administration or cultivation would be inconsistent with the general use of the premises. A landlord or business owner may prohibit the smoking of marijuana for medical purposes on the premises of the landlord or business if the landlord or business owner prohibits all smoking on the premises and posts notice to that effect on the premises.”
Testing cannabis for pesticides, pollutants, heavy metals, and cannabinoid content is mandatory in Maine.
In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy or another legally designated space to buy cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can do so.
All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks, or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals, or other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members’ clubs and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.
The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense, generally keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
