September 25th, 2010

Safe Harbor Maine Inc., a nonprofit organization, hopes to be the first to open early next year in Biddeford. Glenn Peterson, Safe Harbor’s chief executive officer, predicted that the business would serve fewer than 100 patients in the first year.

A spokesman for the Maine Health Department said the first of eight dispensaries across the state should open for business soon after Jan. 1. Over the past two months, the Health Department’s Division of Licensing and Regulatory Services has awarded licenses to operate dispensaries in each of the state’s eight public health districts.
