Town officials are moving forward with new guidelines for a medical marijuana dispensary and cultivation center in Merrimack.

The Telegraph of Nashua reports Merrimack officials said Tuesday evening that a licensed company is interested in putting a dispensary in the town.

Town officials unanimously granted initial approval on new rules requiring dispensaries be 1,000 feet away from schools. Police must also review their floor-plans and security measures.

The Town Council will review the proposed changes Thursday and hold another hearing in September before holding a final vote.

New Hampshire passed a medical marijuana law in 2013 dividing the state into four regions. Each region can have one dispensary and one cultivation center, but no dispensaries have been installed yet.
