I believe the state of Maine requires 40lbs of pull to be legal. It could possibly be 45lbs but I'm pretty sure it's 40.

I don't know if there is a limit, but there is a minimum in NYS:

It is inlawful to use a bow with a draw weight of 35 lbs or less.

CT says nothing about poundage.
What they require is the bow must be able to propel an arrow at least 400 grains 150 yards over level ground. I'v been told this equates to 40-45 lbs.
