You can’t yet buy adult-use marijuana in Maine. But there’s nothing wrong with starting to plan what you might do when you can.
For such a small state, there are many beautiful areas to visit and interesting things to do in Maine. Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that you can’t use cannabis anywhere but in a private home in Maine, so don’t try to use marijuana at any of these places. And get someone who hasn’t been using cannabis to drive you there.
Acadia National Park
Do we need to tell you this? This should rank at the top of every list of things to do in Maine. The park offers the natural beauty of the coast, the seven peaks of more than 1,000 feet, 158 miles of hiking trails and 45 miles of carriage roads with 16 stone bridges. This is a must see in Maine.
Portland Museum of Art
The right kind of cannabis gives you the ability to have deep focus, and art is the perfect way to use that focus. The Portland Museum of Art is the largest publicly funded art museum in Maine. It holds more than 18,000 works of art. They include works by Jasper Johns, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. For a museum that focuses more on Maine artists, try the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland.
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
How does 270 acres of lush greenery and beautiful, colorful flowers sound when your senses are sharpened by cannabis? The botanical gardens are beautiful, as can be seen in the photo gallery, and they also light the gardens at night for special occasions. The gardens are open April 15 through Oct. 31.
There are plenty of well-preserved, historic places in Maine. They include the Hamilton House, a Georgian mansion in South Berwick that is a National Historic Landmark. There’s also the Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Observatory. The fort, built in 1844, is one of the best preserved on the New England coast. The observatory offers 360-degree views of the Penobscot River and Bay, the Maine countryside and the distant western mountains, according to the state website. There’s also the Wadsworth-Longfellow House. Built in 1786, it was the home in the 1800s of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and now operates as a house museum by the Maine Historical Society.
Stephen King Sites
Every book reader on the planet – and even those who don’t read – know about Stephen King. He based the fictional city of Derry on the real city of Bangor, Maine. A Maine native, many of his stories have inspiration from local landmarks, which the local radio station has provided a handy list for people to check out. They include the cemetery used for the film version of “Pet Sematary” and the park where King supposedly wrote much of the novel, “It.”
These are just some of the things to do in Maine when high. Maine offers a lot to do and see. And soon, it will offer recreational marijuana to go along with it.
