EPPING, New Hampshire — A 12,600-square-foot medical marijuana dispensary proposed in Epping, New Hampshire, has not been well received by some selectmen, despite the fact that medical marijuana is now legal in the state.

Selectman Jim McGeough said Monday night that Epping is a bedroom community and isn't the right place for a dispensary. He suggested a location like the Pease International Tradeport or a spot near a hospital would be a better place for it.

The $2 million proposal now goes before the town planning board on Dec. 11.

The state passed a law last year allowing seriously ill residents to use marijuana to treat their illnesses. Up to four dispensaries would be licensed.
