MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire planning board has approved a conditional use permit for a marijuana dispensary.

The Nashua Telegraph reports (bit.ly/1PhiYbK) that the Merrimack board on Tuesday approved the permit for Prime Alternative Health Treatments of New Hampshire, one of three companies approved to distribute medical marijuana in the state.

The company wants to open a facility that will serve Hillsborough and Merrimack counties. It wants to convert a former credit union on Daniel Webster Highway.

Business owners expressed concerns that illegal trespassing or an increase in crime could take place in the area where the dispensary would be opened.

But board member Alastair Millns says the types of people who would use the facility- mostly elderly people -wouldn’t pose a threat to the area.
