Hearings set this week for towns eyed for NH medical marijuana sites

The Associated Press

PLYMOUTH — Public hearings are being held this week in four New Hampshire communities eyed as potential sites for the state's first medical marijuana dispensaries.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports the first two hearings are set for Monday night in Plymouth and Merrimack, followed by a hearings Tuesday in Peterborough and Wednesday in Lebanon.

In Plymouth, where Salem-based Sanctuary ATC wants to open a state-licensed dispensary, the chair of the town select board says he hasn't heard much opposition from residents. But Mike Conklin says there's concern among some that having a large quantity of marijuana in town is risky for young people.

New Hampshire passed a medical marijuana law in 2013, but hasn't installed any dispensaries.
