"AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Attorney General Janet Mills says a proposal to legalize marijuana for recreational use would have the effect of making pot legal for children. Mills told WCSH-TV the referendum to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and older removes the existing legal language that makes possession of small amounts of marijuana a civil infraction for both adults and children. She that would make it legal for anyone - not just adults - to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana. She suggested it wasn't just an inadvertent error. Scott Anderson, an attorney who represents the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Maine, told the Portland Press Herald that Mills never previously raised those concerns and called it a 'last-minute' change. He insisted the referendum would legalize marijuana only for adults.", www.wcsh6.com
"The interpretation by the state's top prosecutor, a Democrat, provided a late gift to marijuana opponents and put referendum supporters on the defensive. Mills said the referendum removes existing legal language that makes possession of small amounts of marijuana a civil infraction for both adults and children. The referendum language says approval would allow 'a person 21 years of age or older to use, possess or transport marijuana accessories and up to 2½ ounces of prepared marijuana.' LePage warned that passage of the proposal could lead to more highway fatalities, and he said the active ingredient in pot could harm children and pets. Lori Libbey, a registered nurse who works with a group that provides pediatric cannabis for kids with seizure disorders, said she doubts Mills' opinion would sway voters who're waffling.", www.sfchronicle.com

The ability to collect mountains of new taxes could be a reason,", www.norwichbulletin.com
