Maine lawmakers approved a bill to regulate the state’s recreational marijuana industry late Monday night that now heads to the governor, who has 10 days to sign the legislation, veto it or let it pass into law without signing it.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage has threatened to veto any legislation that doesn’t delay until 2019 the start of adult-use marijuana sales, TV station WGME reported.

Under the legislation, a statewide moratorium on the adult-use program would expire in February 2018. Municipalities could opt out of the market and implement their own moratorium beyond the February expiration
