The target date for the first legal sales of marijuana in Maine are being pushed back again as the state and municipalities work on issuing licenses.

The Portland Press Herald reports state officials had hoped the first marijuana stores could open this spring, but it now looks like June is more realistic.

Applicants for licenses need to receive a conditional state license, get local authorization and return to the state for an active license. The process can be time consuming.
