An Act To Allow Maine Medical Marijuana Caregivers To Measure Cultivation Limits by Plant Canopy Size

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 22 MRSA §2422, sub-§7-B  is enacted to read:

7-B Plant canopy.   "Plant canopy" means the total surface area within a cultivation area that is dedicated to the cultivation of mature marijuana plants. The surface area of the plant canopy must be calculated in square feet and measured using the outside boundaries of the area and must include all of the area within the boundaries. If the surface area of the plant canopy consists of noncontiguous areas, each component area must be separated by identifiable boundaries. If a tiered or shelving system is used in the cultivation area the surface area of each tier or shelf must be included in calculating the area of the plant canopy. Calculation of the area of the plant canopy may not include the areas within the cultivation area that are used to cultivate immature marijuana plants and seedlings and that are not used at any time to cultivate mature marijuana plants.

Sec. 2. 22 MRSA §2423-A, sub-§2, ¶B,  as amended by PL 2017, c. 452, §4, is further amended to read:

B. Cultivate up to 30 mature marijuana plants or 500 square feet of plant canopy, 60 immature marijuana plants and unlimited seedlings;

Effective 90 days following adjournment of the 129th Legislature, First Regular Session, unless otherwise indicated.
