Medical marijuana dispensary opening Wednesday in Auburn

A new medical marijuana dispensary is opening Wednesday, despite the U.S. Attorney’s Office recently ruling that it can prosecute for marijuana under federal law, regardless of Maine’s medical marijuana laws.

An official with the U.S. Attorney’s office re-affirmed over the phone Tuesday night with News 13, that under federal law, federal authorities can raid any location distributing marijuana, even if it’s happening legally under Maine law. A U.S. official also told lawmakers recently that federal marijuana laws can override Maine marijuana laws, if a federal official decides to prosecute.

But still, that’s not stopping a new dispensary from opening up in Auburn.  It’s called Remedy Compassion Center, and it will sell medical marijuana to patients by appointment only.    

The dispensary will offer non-smoking alternatives for patients, including foods.Medical marijuana dispensary opening Wednesday in Auburn
