BIDDEFORD – For three years, medical marijuana patients have been visiting Canuvo Medical Cannabis Dispensary at 6 Wellspring Road to access a variety of marijuana products. Open five days a week, the dispensary provides tinctures, edibles that are dosed to meet patients’ needs and 80 different strains of marijuana for smoking. The plant is considered illegal by the federal government, but has been legal under state law for medical purposes since 1999. The law was expanded in 2010 to allow up to eight dispensaries to be licensed; both measures were passed by statewide voter referenda.

Sage Peterson, director of patient care, founded the dispensary in 2010 with her husband, Glenn, and in 2011, doors were opened at the small medical complex located across Route 111 from Southern
