Springfield marijuana dispensary

Community members expressed concerns

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Springfield’s Health and Human Services subcommittee postponed a vote to approve a medical marijuana dispensary in Springfield.

Hampden Care Facility wants to locate the dispensary at 506 Cottage Street in Springfield, but the subcommittee expressed concerns. The proposed host community agreement gives the company an exclusive license in Springfield for ten years and city councilors want to allow for competition.

The subcommittee will schedule another meeting sometime this summer to further discuss the host agreement.

If and when it opens, it will be the first medical marijuana dispensary in Hampden county.
