Augusta approves six-month moratorium on recreational pot facilities

Kennebec Journal

Steve Langsdorf, attorney for the City of Augusta, is quoted in this article regarding a six-month moratorium on the establishment of recreational marijuana stores and social clubs within city limits.

An Excerpt:

In late November, Bridgeo said he asked Stephen Langsdorf, the city’s attorney, to prepare a draft recreational marijuana ordinance for councilors to consider adopting, given the election outcome.

At the time, several councilors expressed interest in a moratorium.

Langsdorf speculated the recount could delay legalization until sometime in January, but given the referendum’s margin of victory, he said his law firm, Preti, Flaherty, Beliveau & Pachios LLP, believes there is "an extremely low chance of that being flipped over."
