AUBURN, Maine — Maine’s newest medical marijuana dispensary is opening in Auburn.

Starting Wednesday, the Remedy Compassion Center will sell medical marijuana to patients by appointment only.

The opening comes despite a warning by Maine’s top federal prosecutor that regardless of Maine’s medical marijuana law, the dispensary can be prosecuted under federal law.

WGME-TV says the Auburn dispensary will offer nonsmoking alternatives for patients, including foods.
