Here’s another set of regulations that your cannabis business needs to pay attention to.

The National Fire Protection Association develops the safety codes and standards that most cities and towns use in their own fire codes. An NFPA committee has drafted a proposed marijuana chapter for its Fire Code. If the chapter passes an NFPA vote this month, it will be published on January 16, 2017, and will be in the 2018 edition of the NFPA Fire Code.

This means that your city or town will likely add regulations specific to marijuana businesses to its fire code. And you will need to comply.

NOTICE: While growing, selling, and using medical marijuana is legal in Maine, it is prohibited under federal law. The federal government may at any time prosecute marijuana possession and sales.

Growing, possessing, and using marijuana for recreational use is legal in Maine with certain restrictions. However, it is still a crime under federal law. Selling recreational marijuana is a crime under both Maine and federal law.

The federal government classifies marijuana as a Class I substance, carrying the highest penalties for possession and sales.

The legal advice that I provide is not intended to assist you with violating or complying with any federal laws.
