BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The deadline is nearing for businesses to submit applications to the Vermont Department of Public Safety to open a fourth medical marijuana dispensary in the state.
Lindsay Wells, the state's marijuana program administrator tells the Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/15sLwfe) the state has received few complaints about the first dispensaries, and only from patients with concerns about access, not from the general public.
Shayne Lynn says he thought he'd have about 75 clients by now at the Champlain Valley Dispensary in Burlington. He has 175.
The closing date for applications is Sept. 3. Each application must be accompanied by a $2,500 non-refundable application fee.
A state law authorizes the use of medical marijuana in Vermont to relieve symptoms of some chronic medical conditions. The law allows up to four dispensaries.
