The emergence and quick growth of Maine's cannabis programs have presented a host of legal challenges. One of the challenges that Maine cannabis businesses face is state and federal tax treatment. Although many states and other jurisdictions are legalizing aspects of use and production, cannabis remains illegal federally. Because of this conflict between state and federal law, the tax treatment of cannabis-related businesses can be complex and confusing.
