South Portland pot referendum goes door to door

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- We're now ten days away from election day when voters will be heading to the polls. Those in South Portland will have to decide if they want to legalize recreational marijuana for adults in their city, and the campaigns from both sides are spending the final stretch going door to door.

A group from the Marijuana Policy Project spent their Saturday walking around several residential areas of South Portland asking citizens to vote in favor of the marijuana referendum. That would allow adults over the age of 21 to posses one once of marijuana or less in their homes, but not in public places. According to the Maine Director of the Marijuana Policy Project, David Boyer, recreational marijuana is a safer alternative to alcohol and would allow law enforcement to spend their time dealing with more serious crimes.

Meet the man behind the Target standoff

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- When Corbin Pratt gave himself up to police in South Portland on Monday night, after a three hour standoff, even he didn't anticipate how much attention he would get in the following days.

Susan Kimball, from our media partner the Portland Press Herald, got to talk with Pratt a day after the standoff and she has more on this young man who caused such a stir because he didn't want to leave his home.

Pratt has been in Maine for a couple of months, now. But, this story started earlier this summer. Pratt said he drove all that way from California to Maine in a school bus he bought on Craigslist. When he arrived in Maine in August, he continued to live in his bus, moving from parking lot to parking lot, including a four week stint at Walmart in Falmouth.
