WATERBURY ó The state Public Safety Department has conditionally approved Vermontís first two medical marijuana dispensaries.
The approvals under the stateís medical marijuana program are for Patients First Inc. in Waterbury and Champlain Valley Dispensary Inc. in Burlington, according to the state.
Once each dispensary satisfies the stipulations set forth in the law passed last year, a certificate of operation will be issued. The dispensaries are expected to open within six months of approval, following rules adopted by the Public Safety Department.
The state would not identify the proposed locations of the sites.
Vermont has 411 patients and 68 caregivers on the medical marijuana registry, which allows them to grow enough for a patientís own use. The dispensaries would give patients who canít grow marijuana another means of getting it.
Additional applications for dispensaries are still undergoing review. The law allows for up to four dispensaries to be operating throughout the state. Applications are no longer being accepted.
Questions concerning the specific dispensaries should be directed to the entities operating them. For questions about the program, contact Lindsey Wells, marijuana program administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 241-5115.
