PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Public hearings are being held this week in four New Hampshire communities eyed as potential sites for the state’s first medical marijuana dispensaries.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1Mxxccd ) the first two hearings are set for Monday night in Plymouth and Merrimack, followed by a hearings Tuesday in Peterborough and Wednesday in Lebanon.

In Plymouth, where Salem-based Sanctuary ATC wants to open a state-licensed dispensary, the chair of the town select board says he hasn’t heard much opposition from residents. But Mike Conklin says there’s concern among some that having a large quantity of marijuana in town is risky for young people.

New Hampshire passed a medical marijuana law in 2013, but hasn’t installed any dispensaries.
