Tim Smale, operator of the Remedy Compassion Center in Auburn and president of the Maine Dispensary Operators Association, believes there has been about a three-fold increase in the number of doctors certifying patients in the past couple of years. Maine law has been amended so that nurse practitioners and physician's assistants also can certify patients.

"In previous years there just didn't seem to be as many doctors writing certifications," Smale said.

Smale said dispensary operators across the state report similar trends among all their patients, including seeing more elderly people who want to use medical cannabis for treatment of chronic pain. The Remedy Compassion Center, which Smale owns and operates in Auburn, now primarily serves patients between ages 50 and 70, he said.
"The other things we're finding is folks are looking for an alternative to their opiates," he said.

Smale, the Auburn dispensary owner who is president of the Maine Dispensary Operators Association, said banking is also stressful and challenging for the operators of Maine's eight dispensaries. Most - if not all - have had bank accounts canceled and must accept only cash from patients, he said.
At least once a year, Smale gets a letter or phone call from his bank notifying him that his dispensary's account is being closed because it sells marijuana. Each time, he says, he's forced to scramble to find another bank willing to take on his business.
"It's been miraculous timing for us to always have a bank when we needed one. There have been times when it's been very frightening to face the possibility that we can't do payroll or pay our vendors or have to pay our monthly sales tax in cash," Smale said.
