The state has granted approval for a medical marijuana dispensary to open in Keene.

Temescal Wellness plans to open the site Saturday at 69 Island Street, Suite 1. It will be open to patients currently registered with its Lebanon location.

The new location is possible under a 2018 law that sought to expand access to the state's therapeutic cannabis program, which now enrolls over 11,000 patients.

Last week, Prime ATC opened a second dispensary on Route 4 in Chichester, which is part of a geographic area with its existing Merrimack location.

New Hampshire now has seven medical marijuana dispensaries statewide.
