Bipartisan Maine Bill Would Legalize Marijuana Delivery Services, Allow Marijuana Advertisements

Legislation filed last week by Maine Representative David Boyer would legalize marijuana delivery services and would allow marijuana companies to advertise under the same rules as alcohol products.

According to the official summary of HP 1079, it “allows adult use cannabis and cannabis product stores, certain cultivators and products manufacturers to operate a delivery service to commercial locations, including locations operated as short-term rental properties”.

The proposal also “allows an adult use cannabis and cannabis product licensee to advertise, market and display signs promoting the licensee’s business and products in a manner no more restricted than the sale or promotion of alcohol, tobacco products or prescription drugs is restricted. This bill allows signs for adult use cannabis and adult use cannabis products on the exterior of motor vehicles.”

HP 1079 has been assigned to the Committee on Veterans and Legal Affairs. It’s cosponsored by Representatives Craig Hickman, Benjamin Collings, Laura Supica and Morgan Rielly.


The official text of HP 1079 states:

A tier 1 cultivation facility under section 301, subsection 1, a tier 2 cultivation facility under section 301, subsection 2 and a nursery cultivation facility may sell to consumers through a delivery service operated under the same requirements as for cannabis stores under section 504, subsection 9, but a nursery cultivation facility may sell under this subsection only those items authorized for sale under subsection 3, paragraph D. A cultivation facility authorized to conduct retail sales under this subsection shall ensure that the tax imposed on the sale of adult use cannabis and adult use cannabis products to a consumer pursuant to Title 36, section 1811 is collected and remitted in accordance with the requirements of Title 36, Part 3 and the rules adopted pursuant to Title 36, Part 3.

A products manufacturing facility may sell to consumers through a delivery service operated under the same requirements as for cannabis stores under section 504, subsection 9. A products manufacturing facility authorized to conduct retail sales under this subsection shall ensure that the tax imposed on the sale of adult use cannabis and adult use cannabis products to a consumer pursuant to Title 36, section 1811 is collected and remitted in accordance with the requirements of Title 36, Part 3 and the rules adopted pursuant to Title 36, Part 3.
