In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
X. If the department determines that having additional locations for the dispensing of therapeutic cannabis is necessary to adequately and effectively meet the needs of qualifying patients and designated caregivers, the department may authorize the alternative treatment centers allowed to operate in geographic areas 1, 2, 3, and 4 to establish a second dispensary location within those same geographic areas. A second dispensary location shall only be established in a geographic location approved by the department, shall be limited solely to the dispensing of cannabis and educational efforts, and shall not be used for cultivation or other activities relative to the production of cannabis. A second dispensary location shall be subject to rules adopted by the department under RSA 126-X:6, III, and any additional rules adopted by the department relative to a second dispensary location under RSA 126-X:6, IV, and all applicable provisions of this chapter relative to alternative treatment centers including, but not limited to, compliance with local zoning laws. The department shall, in conjunction with the local governing body of the town or city where the second dispensary location would be located, solicit input from qualifying patients, designated caregivers, and residents of the town or city in which the second dispensary location would be located.
IV. The department may adopt rules regarding the establishment of [a] second dispensary [location by the alternative treatment centers described in] locations under RSA 126-X:7, X including, but not limited to, fees, operational requirements, and geographic location.
