PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Three more Maine towns have taken steps to limit retail marijuana establishments.

Maine voters in November narrowly approved a referendum legalizing marijuana.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2jhC223 ) Clinton, Skowhegan and Winslow have each moved forward with restricting retail marijuana establishments.

Clinton’s board of selectman voted Tuesday night to put an emergency moratorium on such establishments. The 60-day moratorium gives the planning board time to prepare changes to the land-use law.

Skowhegan’s selectmen also on Tuesday night agreed to move forward with an ordinance barring retail marijuana establishments and social clubs.

Winslow’s town council on Monday approved a first reading for a moratorium. The council would have 180 days to finalize regulations for retail stores, cultivation facilities and social clubs.
