CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services has issued a medical marijuana registration certificate for a center in Rochester.

Sanctuary ATC is the first to receive department approval to start cultivating medical marijuana in the state.

The department is implementing the Therapeutic Cannabis Program, which will include four dispensary locations and three cultivation centers.

Once Sanctuary ATC has completed its cultivation, the department will inspect Sanctuary's dispensary in Plymouth to determine if it is ready to begin operations.

The department will then issue a registration certificate without conditions to Sanctuary ATC, permitting Sanctuary to begin dispensing marijuana to qualifying patients and designated caregivers who have registered with Sanctuary.

Sanctuary's dispensary is expected to start operating in the spring.
