Concord, NH – On Monday, October 26, 2015, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will hold a public forum, hosted by the City of Dover, to discuss a proposed therapeutic cannabis dispensary in Dover. Temescal Wellness, which was awarded Geographic Area 1 (including Belknap, Rockingham, and Strafford Counties), has identified a proposed location in Dover for its Alternative Treatment Center (ATC).

The public forum will be held on Monday, October 26 from 7:00–9:30pm in Room 305 of the McConnell Center, 61 Locust Street, Dover, NH. The purpose of the meeting is to solicit public input from Dover residents, qualifying patients, and designated caregivers and other attendees about safety and other local concerns and the overall health needs of qualifying patients. Representatives from DHHS will discuss the implementation of the Therapeutic Cannabis Program, and Temescal will discuss operational and security plans for the proposed ATC. Following the presentations, attendees will be encouraged to ask questions. Representatives from the City of Dover are also expected to attend.

In May 2015, DHHS announced the selection of the ATCs that would begin the post-selection registration process. DHHS has worked collaboratively with the selected ATCs, as well as local governing bodies, to hold public input forums in the towns and cities in which they would like to operate. Public input forums have been held regarding proposed ATC dispensary sites in Plymouth, Lebanon, and Merrimack and proposed ATC cultivation sites in Peterborough, Manchester, and Rochester.
