WEBSTER, Mass. (AP) - A Newton company has announced that it wants to open a medical marijuana cultivation operation in Webster.

Garden Remedies, a registered marijuana dispensary organization based in Newton, is scheduled to make a second appearance before selectmen on Wednesday.

The first appearance was in late October.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that Garden Remedies wants to open the growing center inside a 100,000-square-foot old mill building.

Registered marijuana dispensaries cannot begin cultivation until both their dispensary and cultivation sites have received final approval from the state Public Health Department.

A Natick-based business had proposed a cultivation operation at the same site last year, but Town Administrator John McAuliffe said that proposal felt rushed.
