LIVERMORE FALLS — Selectmen voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a license for a fifth medical marijuana retail store.

Roger Moulton of Livermore Falls plans to open The Local Joint at 7 Baldwin St. It had previously been part of 6 Wheeler St., his home, in the former Nazarene Church. He is a registered caregiver and has a medical marijuana cultivation operation in part of the building and made a separate space and a separate entrance to the store.

The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. six days a week and closed Sundays, Moulton told selectmen.

He plans to or has installed a carbon filter and wax melts for odor control in the store and plans to install an odor mitigation system for the grow operation in October, according to his application.

He is looking to open March 15 or early April, he said.

Selectmen have 15 days from approval to issue a written license, if they find the plan complies with the town’s medical marijuana establishment ordinance.


Town Manager Amanda Allen said Moulton has been very patient throughout the approval process.
