PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The first medical marijuana dispensary in Portland has officially opened to patients.
Today was the first day of operations at the Wellness Connection of Maine's office on Congress Street. Organizers expect this one to be one of the busiest, they've already heard from over a hundred patients interested in medical marijuna help.
The building has been completely renovated to look and feel more peaceful; the security system has also been beefed up quite a bit.
The way things operate now, organizers would like new patients to call ahead and set up an initial meeting. Eventually the space will be open to patients to come in whenever they want and simply hang out and relax, use it as a community center, even get some accupuncture.
There are currently dispensaries in Thomaston & Hallowell, the next one will open in Brewer.
