(Dover, NH) - The second medical marijuana dispensary in New Hampshire begins operation today in Dover.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services says the Temescal Wellness Alternative Treatment Center dispensary is the second such facility to operate in the state. A dispensary in Plymouth opened in late April. Other centers will open soon in Merrimack and Lebanon.

Qualifying patients and designated caregivers must select one of the four ATC dispensaries and can only obtain therapeutic cannabis at their designated ATC. Applications for potentially qualifying patients and designated caregivers, medical provider certification, and other important information can be found on the Therapeutic Cannabis Program page on the DHHS website at http://www.dhhs.nh.gov/oos/tcp/index.htm.
