Leavitt, 63, was one of the first customers Wednesday at Sweet Dirt, the first adult-use store in Kennebec County which opened at 475 Kennedy Memorial Drive. 

“I was one of the group of people that, years ago, did the first smoke-in outside the courthouse in Skowhegan, protesting for the legalization of marijuana,” Leavitt, of Waterville, said. “I just kind of chuckle at it now, because I always tell my kids I remember when we tried to get that legalized — and here it is, legalized. This is the first time I’ve ever been in a marijuana facility.”
