“I know everyone on the committee is looking forward to the challenge of determining how to make the law safe and workable,” said Senator Roger Katz (R-Kennebec), Chair of the Special Marijuana Legalization Implementation Committee. “Even though it is now legal for possession of certain amounts of marijuana for those 21 and over, many questions remain – from emerging public safety issues, to licensing and oversight of commercial growers and retail outlets, to packaging and labeling, to keeping edibles and other products out of the hands of our kids. And the list doesn’t end there. It is more important that we resist the pressure to get this done too quickly and instead do our best to get this right the first time.”
