There are many questions on Maine’s new law which makes 
recreational marijuana legal in Maine.  Does your community 
want to attract or keep out this type of business? 
How are downtowns able to prepare for this new business 
and industry type? Discussions will include: legal, 
real estate, planning, how to engage the community in 
the process, growing and selling infrastructure.
