New Hampshire selects medical marijuana dispensary vendors

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is one step closer to giving qualifying patients access to medical marijuana.

The state's Department of Health and Human Services says it has selected three vendors to operate four dispensaries across the state, although specific locations have not been chosen. New Hampshire passed a medical marijuana law in 2013, and the state is running behind schedule in making the treatment available.

The dispensaries will be located in four specific geographic areas: Belknap, Strafford and Rockingham counties; Merrimack and Hillsborough Counties; Sullivan and Cheshire counties; and Grafton, Carroll and Coos counties.

Three companies have been licensed to operate the dispensaries, known as alternative treatment centers: Sanctuary ATC, Prime Alternative Treatment Centers of NH and Temescal Wellness, which will operate two.

Each will need local approval before finalizing locations.
