PORTLAND, Maine — What is believed to be Maine’s first medical marijuana convenience store is scheduled to open in Portland this week.
Atlantic Farms Gas N’ Grass says it will sell cannabis-infused gummies, tinctures and smokeable marijuana on Thursday, the first day Maine’s new sweeping medical marijuana law takes effect. The Portland Press Herald reports adults with a medical card and government-issued identification will be able to buy marijuana products from a renovated walk-in cooler.
Gas and traditional convenience store snacks will also be available.
Jackson McLeod, one of the store’s partners, says he hopes to educate people about the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.
McLeod says the store will caution drivers not to use marijuana while driving.
