LACONIA, New Hampshire — Laconia, New Hampshire, is taking steps to make sure its laws are updated in case it should be eyed as a possible location for a medical marijuana dispensary.

The Laconia Zoning Task Force is scheduled to discuss ordinances related to medical marijuana dispensaries at a meeting Wednesday. A public hearing is scheduled for Feb. 11.

City Manager Scott Myers says he knows of no applications for a dispensary in the city. Applications would go to the state.

Under a 2013 law, up to four dispensaries will be licensed to provide marijuana for the treatment of serious illnesses.

Dispensaries have been proposed in Littleton, Epping, Franklin and Newton.
