NH's 1st medical marijuana dispensary to open in Plymouth on Saturday


The first alternative treatment center in New Hampshire to distribute therapeutic cannabis received a registration certificate to begin operations in Plymouth with an opening on Saturday.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services has announced that the dispensary, Sanctuary ATC, would be registered to administer cannabis to qualifying patients.

“When the Therapeutic Cannabis Program was established by the Legislature, it envisioned that people in New Hampshire suffering from serious medical conditions would be able to access therapeutic cannabis for relief. I am very pleased to announce that with the opening of the Sanctuary dispensary in Plymouth, that day has arrived,” said DHHS Commissioner Jeffrey A. Meyers. “My thanks to the Therapeutic Cannabis Program staff and Sanctuary ATC for their tireless efforts in realizing this significant achievement on behalf of patients and caregivers.”

The DHHS is instituting a program that will include four dispensary locations. Dispensaries are planned to open in Dover and Lebanon in the coming weeks, while another is expected to open in Merrimack this summer.
