A gas station and medical marijuana convenience store opened in Portland Thursday, providing one-stop shopping for patients looking to fuel up and later light up.

Medical card carrying customers in Maine can now find marijuana flower, cannabis-infused products, and gas, of course, at Atlantic Farms Gas N’ Grass on Warren Avenue, likely the first business of its kind in Maine, The Portland Press Herald reports.

“We offer a rotating menu of the best cannabis products from the best caregivers in Maine with the convenience of, well, a convenience store,” Jackson McLeod, a caregiver and shop co-partner, told the newspaper.

The grand opening follows changes made earlier this year to the state’s medical marijuana law that set forth a host of amendments to the nearly 20-year-old regulations, including allowing caregivers to buy products from other caregivers, to hire additional employees, and to open medical marijuana stores, according to the Press Herald.
