He said there is no intention of running the marijuana caregivers out of business and said McCarriers criticism was misplaced. These are campaigns to educate the public on ending marijuana prohibition, Boyer said. I think Paul would agree that marijuana is safer than alcohol. Members of Boyers group have also said they hope if enough Maine cities pass legalization ordinances, the states Legislature will legalize recreational marijuana in Maine so they dont need to put the issue to voters statewide. Maine lawmakers largely have steered away from the issue. A bill in the House of Representatives last session, which would have put the issue before the voters, fell just four votes short of passing .
