RI Health Dept. picks 3 medical marijuana dispensaries
PROVIDENCE -- The state Health Department has selected three dispensaries to sell medical marijuana to the growing patient population in the state.
They are: Summit Medical Compassion Center in Warwick, The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence, and Greenleaf Compassionate Care Center in Portsmouth.
The annoucement was made in a 3 p.m. news release.
"After a thorough and thoughtful review of all applications, health (officials) determined that these three applicants were best able to offer safe, conveniently located options for patients currently enrolled in the medical marijuana program,'' said Interim Director of Health Michael Fine.
The principals in each dispensary are Mark J. Berergon, at Summit; Gerald J. McGraw Jr., at Slater; and Seth Bock, at Greenleaf. Cuttino Mobley, the former NBA basetball player and ex-University of Rhode Island great, is the sole financier of the Summit project.
Last fall, 18 applicants submitted detailed proposals to open marijuana dispensaries across the state. The vast majority of them planned to open in the Providence metropolitan area, but there were also proposals for centers in North Kingstown, Coventry and Portsmouth.
