N.H.'s Third Medical Marijuana Dispensary Now Open in Lebanon

New Hampshire’s third medical marijuana dispensary opened Sunday in Lebanon.

Temescal Wellness, the company operating the dispensary, opened up another dispensary in Dover a little over a week ago. 

About a week before that, another dispensary operated by a company called Sanctuary ATC opened in Plymouth.

New Hampshire’s medical marijuana law allows for four dispensaries in total, so that leaves just one more dispensary left to open.

The Department of Health and Human Services says the final dispensary, operated by Prime ATC in Merrimack, is on track to open sometime this summer.

Patients and caregivers can only buy medical marijuana from one dispensary at a time, and only if they’ve registered with the state in advance. They can switch to a different dispensary if they change their mind, but that change also has to be done through the state.
