NEW: Mass. Awards 20 Medical Marijuana Dispensary Licenses

Friday, January 31, 2014

 

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has issued the state's first 20 medical marijuana dispensary licenses, two of which are located in Central Mass.

Bay State Relief, Inc. in Milford, and Good Chemistry of Massachusetts, Inc. in Worcester will become the area's first two approved dispensaries. 

The law, passed in 2012, allows for up to 35 dispensaries in the state,  and requires each county to have at least one.  Currently, four counties remain with no approved outlets; Berkshire County, Franklin County, Dukes County, and Nantucket County.
