Buzz is all about legalization at Maine's marijuana summit


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The debate over whether to legalize recreational marijuana in Maine will take center stage at an event that bills itself as New England's largest cannabis trade show.

Home Grown Maine 2016 is taking place at the Augusta Civic Center in Maine's capital city on Saturday and Sunday.

The event is hosted by Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine and is a major event for growers, vendors and patients of medical marijuana.

The trade show is happening about five months before residents will vote on whether to make recreational use of marijuana legal in the state.

David Boyer, a Portland activist from the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, says his group will recruit campaigners at the show. But some in the medical marijuana industry have expressed reluctance over legal recreational pot.
