Supporters of recreational marijuana use in Maine will have to overcome another hurdle to legalize the drug.

Opponents have formally filed a recount request against the measure to Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap's office, according to WCSH6.

Question 1 would legalize marijuana cultivation and possession by adults over the age of 21. The measure passed by 4,400 votes.

Those against marijuana legalization in Maine fear that pot shops will endanger children who might get their hands on treats that contain cannabis.
