‘We only sell marijuana here’

William P. Davis
A former KFC in Las Palmas, California was transformed into a medical marijuana dispensary last summer. Is this what the District 5 dispensary in Waterville would look like?

Is Northeast Patients Group really into South Park?

The California-based marijuana group, which recently got a green light from the Department of Health and Human Services to set up four marijuana dispensaries across Maine, is considering setting up a pot shop at the site of a former KFC in Waterville.

The group is also considering a vacant building at 10 Middle Road in Augusta as a possible location for a District 5 dispensary.

But the KFC location immediately brings to mind this South Park clip (which is definitely NSFW). South Park was making fun of a KFC in Las Palmas, Calif., that turned into a medical marijuana dispensary last summer.
