Lebanon city leaders are looking into possible locations for a medical marijuana dispensary.
The proposed dispensary would serve patients in Cheshire, Sullivan and Grafton counties.
Changes to the city’s zoning ordinance, which were passed by the city council, identify a few areas where a dispensary could be located. They include sections of Route 12A, parts of Route 120 near the Lebanon-Hanover town line, sections of Route 4 near Interstate 89 and parts of Miracle Mile Road.
“We’re just trying to simply limit the sites to those that are likely to have the least negative impact on residential districts,” David Brooks of the Lebanon Planning and Zoning Department told News 9. “If we get one in the wrong place and it does turn out to be a problem, then we’re going to be stuck with it.”
New Hampshire passed a law in 2013 that allows for four medical marijuana dispensaries in the state.
So far, none have been opened.
