Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Selected for All Eight Districts

The Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services (DLRS) in the Department of Health and Human Services announced the selection of the last two dispensaries needed to complete the statewide dispensary system.

The dispensary system has been established to assist registered patients whose physicians believe they will benefit from the medical use of marijuana for certain serious medical conditions.

The dispensaries were chosen based on criteria outlined in the application instructions, including their plan to operate as a non-profit corporation long-term, convenience of location, prior business experience, patient education, record-keeping, inventory, and quality control.

Those who obtained the highest scores in their Districts and met the required minimum score of 70 were:

  • District 1 (York County): Safe Harbor Maine, Inc
  • District 2 (Cumberland County): Northeast Patients Group
  • District 3 (Androscoggin, Franklin, Oxford Counties): Remedy Compassion Center
  • District 4 (Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, Waldo Counties): Northeast Patients Group
  • District 5 (Kennebec, Somerset Counties): Northeast Patients Group
  • District 6 (Penobscot, Piscataquis Counties): Northeast Patients Group
  • District 7 (Hancock, Washington): Primary Organic Therapy, Inc
  • District 8 (Aroostook County): Safe Alternatives of Fort Kent

Cathy Cobb, Director of DLRS, will be meeting with each dispensary chief executive to review their progress and discuss the next steps. She anticipates it will take between two and three months for a dispensary to be open to patients.
