Marijuana Dispensaries in Bangor, Maine

With a local pot doctor to help you get your medical marijuana card, you could be shopping at medical marijuana dispensaries in Bangor and the surrounding areas of nearby Brewer and not-too-far Old Town if you don't want to wait for recreational shops to hit the northern part of the state.

That's because even though it's been years since voters passed recreational weed in the state, legal challenges to the bill (which passed by less than 4,000 votes) and a troublesome governor have pushed back the licensing of recreational dispensaries.

Medical Marijuana in Maine

In 1999, 62 percent of voters made Maine the second state in the country to pass a medical marijuana bill, just three years behind California (1996). Listed as Question 2 and known as the Maine Medical Marijuana for Specific Illnesses bill, it allowed patients and their caregivers to grow up to an ounce-and-a-quarter of flower marijuana at home.

Unlike most medical marijuana laws, however, Question 2 didn't seek to establish a medical dispensary system at all. Patients were expected to grow their own, and for ten years they were unable to buy cannabis legally. It wasn't until 2009 when Maine's medical marijuana laws were overhauled, and the licensing of dispensaries and production facilities were added to Maine medical marijuana law. This was great for patients, and medical marijuana dispensaries soon hit Bangor and other cities across Maine.

Recreational Marijuana in Maine

In 2016, following the passing of recreational weed in the cities of Portland and South Portland, the state of Maine made adult consumption, possession and cultivation of marijuana legal for adults over the age of 21.

But, because the law passed by under 4,000 votes (about half a percent of all votes cast), numerous legal challenges and a veto-happy governor have kept recreational dispensaries from opening across the state, though there are a few medical marijuana dispensaries in Bangor and the surrounding areas.

Maine Marijuana Law Timeline

  • 1913: Maine becomes the second U.S. state to ban cannabis (Massachusetts, 1911).
  • 1976: Maine lawmakers decriminalize small amounts of marijuana possession in the state.
  • 1999: Medical marijuana passes with 62 percent of the vote.
  • 2009: Maine revisits medical marijuana, adding the legal framework for dispensaries, and decriminalizes possession of up to two-and-a-half ounces of flower marijuana.
  • 2013-2014: The cities of Portland (2013) and South Portland (2014) allow marijuana possession within city limits. The city of Lewiston in 2014 tried to follow suit but the initiative was defeated by voters.
  • 2016: Maine voters pass the Marijuana Legalization Act by just 4,000 votes, which prompted a recount and other legal challenges that would suspend the state's recreational marijuana law for years.
  • 2017: Maine Governor, Paul LePage, vetoes a recreational marijuana regulation bill that sought to establish dispensaries in the state, invoking federal law. The state legislature disagreed, and in 2018 they overturned LePage's veto.
