The Department of Health Thursday granted 27 dispensary permits for medical marijuana dispensaries. The permittees will now have six months in which to become operational, before they can begin dispensing medical marijuana.
"This has been a highly competitive process and the department received hundreds of quality applications," said John Collins, Director of the Office of Medical Marijuana. "Once this program is fully operational, patients with serious medical conditions will have locations throughout the commonwealth where they can purchase medication to help in their treatment. We remain on track to provide medication to patients in 2018."
There will be a total of 52 dispensaries located throughout the Commonwealth. Each of the 27 dispensary permit holders is eligible to open a total of three locations. Some dispensary permit holders have opted not to open all eligible locations at this time.
