Marijuana Collectors Expected To Help With Testing In Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine - Maine marijuana regulators have created new rules about sample collections that are expected to make the state's testing system less burdensome. Maine approved adult use marijuana in 2016 and has been in the process of crafting rules and regulations about sales since. The coronavirus pandemic has slowed the rollout in recent months.

The Maine Office of Marijuana Policy says the state now has the ability to license and regulate sample collectors. The office says collectors will be workers who collect samples of marijuana and marijuana products for testing on behalf of marijuana testing facilities and other adult marijuana use establishments.
