The state of Maine is looking for a marijuana consultant that can help its officials figure out how to set up regulations for the state’s recreational and medicinal marijuana markets.
According to the Portland Press Herald, the state Department of Administrative and Financial Services issued a proposal request earlier this week for a cannabis consultant. Officials say the consultant will write rules and regulations for pot businesses and help implement policy involving caretakers.
Last year Maine had also requested help but it was unpaid. Respondents then had included the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and groups for and against marijuana legalization.
Those who want to apply must submit their proposal by November 1st. The candidates will be evaluated on their experience, services and the potential impact on the state’s economy.
