 Less than a week after New Hampshire’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened in Plymouth, another is poised to open on Thursday in Dover.

The Department of Health and Human Services has officially certified Temescal Wellness, which was selected to operate two of the state's New Hampshire’s four medical marijuana dispensaries, to start serving patients at its Dover location. The company says it plans to open its doors at noon on Thursday.

Temescal Wellness is also expected to open another location soon in Lebanon. DHHS says that location could be certified within the next few weeks.

Prime ATC, the other company selected to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Merrimack, is still preparing the cultivation site where it’s going to grow its medical marijuana.

The state says the company plans to have its dispensary ready to open sometime this summer.

New Hampshire's medical marijuana law first passed in 2013, but it's taken several years for the state to get the program up and running
