Massachusetts Overhauls Medical Marijuana Dispensary Application Process

BOSTON, MA — The process for applying to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Massachusetts was given a much needed overhaul on Friday, allowing dispensaries to be approved in a format similar to how other health care facilities, such as pharmacies, are licensed.

Officials from the Department of Public Health (DPH) said Friday that the new process for licencing Registered Marijuana Dispensaries would begin next month, aimed at streamlining the process for approval and provide better access for patients.  Previously announced changes to the application process were expected to be in place by May 15.
