Legal status of psychedelics in Maine

Illegal drug possession is committed when a person knowingly and intentionally possesses a scheduled substance. The severity of the crime of drug possession depends on the type of drug and the quantity. To note, possession of cannabis under 2.5 ounces has been decriminalized. But anything over 2.5 ounces is a crime, starting with as a Class 4 crime and increasing to a Class B crime, again depending on the quantity of cannabis.

The severity of the offense or, more accurately, the seriousness of the sentences that follow a conviction of the offense is not necessarily determined by the type of drug crime in Maine. The drug schedule, the classification of the felony, and the amount of the drug all play a role in the punishment of a drug crime conviction.

Hallucinogens are Schedule X drugs in Maine. Possession of a small amount of Schedule X drug is a Class D crime, which is punishable by up to 364 days of incarceration and a $2,000 fine.

Maine is proposing a novel solution to reducing the increasing death toll from the opioid epidemic: drug decriminalization. As a growing consensus emerges about the failure of the decades-long war on drugs, Maine has become the latest state to consider the decriminalization of even hard drugs. People who possess a small amount of drugs such as cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine would only get a fine and could be referred to an addiction recovery program. It’s not specified what amounts of these drugs would be subject to reduced penalties, but that is expected to be clarified in future discussion.
