PORTLAND - After a blazing summer of sales for Maine's cannabis industry, the slow season has arrived for local stores across the state.
Maine is closing in on two years of allowing adult-use or recreational sales to anyone over 21. While both adult-use and medical markets have their own advantages, they also share similar struggles.
“The voices of smaller businesses, the voices of farmers, the voices of customers, are very often completely ignored in cannabis policy," Mark Barnett, founder of Higher Grounds and the Maine Craft Cannabis Association, said on Wednesday.
