Dover to discuss possibility of first medical marijuana dispensary in town

The Associated Press

DOVER — The N.H. Health Department will hold a public forum in Dover to discuss setting up a medical marijuana dispensary.

Temescal Wellness, a nonprofit, was selected by the department to operate the alternative treatment center to serve patients in Strafford, Rockingham and Belknap counties.

The public forum will be held on Monday, Oct. 26, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the McConnell Center in Dover. The purpose is to gather input from residents, qualifying patients and designated caregivers about safety and other local concerns.

Similar forums on proposed dispensary sites have been held in Plymouth, Lebanon, Merrimack and in proposed cultivation sites in Peterborough, Manchester and Rochester.

The dispensaries will provide patients the first legal way to access the drug since lawmakers approved medical marijuana in 2013.
