Gov. Paul LePage holds the key to the future of cannabis regulation in the state of Maine.

After a little more than a week of counting in December 2016, the opposition withdrew its recount request. But Gov. LePage wasn’t quite convinced, saying he would consider challenging the results of Maine legalization if the Trump administration decided to enforce federal cannabis laws. At that time, LePage also questioned the value of Maine’s medical marijuana program on the advent of a recreational program.
