In February 2019, DAFS created the Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) to oversee all aspects of legalized marijuana, including Maine's existing Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Individuals interested in staying apprised the work of OMP may wish to complete the form on our Stay Connected page. The Office is currently in the process of drafting, in concert with their hired cannabis consultants, the rules that will establish govern a recreational program as well as reviewing existing rules under the state's existing medical program. 

Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. Mainers should educate themselves about the potential consequences of medicinal or recreational use of marijuana.
