WATERBURY -- The state Public Safety Department has conditionally 
approved two medical marijuana dispensaries.

The approvals under the state's medical marijuana program are for 
Patients First Inc. in Waterbury and Champlain Valley Dispensary Inc. 
in Burlington, according to the state.

Once each dispensary satisfies the stipulations set forth in the 
statute, a certificate of operation will be issued. The dispensaries 
are expected to open within six months of approval, following rules 
adopted by the Public Safety Department.

The state would not identify the proposed locations of the sites.

Additional applications are still undergoing review. The statute 
allows for up to four dispensaries to be operating throughout the 
state. Applications for dispensaries are no longer being accepted.

Questions concerning the specific dispensaries should be directed to 
the operating entities. For questions about the program, contact 
Lindsey Wells, marijuana program administrator, at  or 241-5115.
