Lincolnville — Approximately 75 voters convened at the Lincolnville Central School Feb. 13 and, despite debate on a few measures, eventually approved a special town meeting warrant that included relegating methadone and marijuana clinics to a section of Route 1 to transferring money to begin a town office renovation project.

The warrant also included amending town ordinances governing home occupations to ease some of the restrictions on setting up a home-based business; entering into a multi-year lease with the Lincolnville Historical Society for the use of the town-owned former Dean Eugley property on Main Street; and authorizing the selectmen to sell 2.31 acres of tax-acquired land on South Cobbtown Road.

    OK I object to calling a dispensary a “drug clinic”…it’s wrong!… METHADONE  on the other hand is a drug.  It’s this kind of mindset that keeps Medically LEGAL marijuana in the schedule 1 spectrum.
    Medically Legal Marijuana should be removed from the schedule 1 list, because SCHEDULE 1 means there is NO MEDICINAL BENEFIT.  
    Marijuana has been PROVEN to have medical benefits.
    I know this for a fact because for more than 20 years I was taking PRESCRIBED NARCOTICS that did not work, and now I am using medical marijuana, and am NO LONGER in pain, and NO LONGER use narcotics!!
