Maine’s hashish increase is abandoning Aroostook growers

As Maine’s vigorous hashish scene explodes in retail markets, Aroostook County growers say the increase means extra work for much less cash.

Protected Options of Caribou was the primary medical marijuana store on the East Coast when it opened in Frenchville in 2011. Now The County has practically 20 medical and adult-use storefronts from the St. John Valley to Houlton.

Medical and adult-use hashish gross sales in Maine netted greater than $460 million in 2022, in response to the Maine Workplace of Hashish Coverage and Maine Income Providers.
