Gov. LePage vetoed Maine’s legislative effort to regulate and tax the sale of adult-use marijuana on Friday, which promptly ignited today’s effort to override the governor’s assault on the citizen-backed initiative.

On Friday, the Maine Governor authored a letter explaining his position. LePage cited his ongoing anxiety over how the Trump administration would ultimately handle a “bifurcated” system that creates a noteworthy conflict between federal and state policy.
