Marijuana Fest Nipped in the Bud

Sorry, could not resist that headline.

The Portland Press Herald “After asserting for two days that a medical marijuana festival would go on despite the Portland City Council’s denial of an amended permit, organizers late Wednesday appeared to acknowledge that it’s unlikely to take place.”

“A post on the Facebook page of the New England Cannabis Farmers Market said organizers were informed by the city Wednesday afternoon that ‘the city manager will not be granting the required revocable permit’ for the event.”
