Penelope “Penny” Overton writes about the lobster and marijuana industries for the Portland Press Herald, Maine’s biggest daily newspaper. She joined the paper in 2016 as a business and enterprise reporter, and added the newly created marijuana beat in 2018, right after Maine voters legalized adult-use marijuana. Over a two-decade career, her beats have included politics, state government, the environment, American Indian issues and a whole lot of enterprise in small and large markets in Florida, Arizona and Connecticut.
