GARDINER, Maine — Members of the community came together Saturday to pick up bags of trash in exchange for bags of marijuana.
Dennis Meehan, owner of Summit Medical Marijuana, got the idea from a shop in Colorado as well as the city's own Day of Caring project.
"Bring us back the full trash bag, and we give them a gift of cannabis," Dennis Meehan, owner of Summit Medical Marijuana, told WCSH.
Meehan shared a photo on social media of a trash bin overflowing with trash bags.
He hopes to organize a statewide neighborhood cleanup event with other dispensaries.
