5:10 p.m. (Maine): Supporters of legalizing adult-use cannabis will gather at the Westin Portland Harborview Hotel in downtown Portland for what they hope will be a celebration of Question 1’s passage.
Maine’s Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol was expecting from 50 to 150 guests, including dispensary owners, state representatives and caregivers, said David Boyer, who heads the drive.
“The campaign is cautiously optimistic,” Boyer said. “Turnout is high here, and that helps us.”
