Groups hoping to open medical marijuana dispensaries in New Hampshire have until next week to submit their applications to the state.
Under a 2013 law, up to four dispensaries will be licensed to provide marijuana for the treatment of serious illnesses. The law had set a deadline of Jan. 23, 2015, for the state to choose at least two locations, but the Department of Health and Human Services says the decision won't likely be made until late February.
The department issued its request for applications Dec. 19, and groups have until Jan. 28 to apply. Dispensaries have been proposed in Littleton, Epping, Franklin and Newton.
