Marijuana dispensaries for Boston sought

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - State health officials are considering proposals for medical marijuana operations in some of Massachusetts' largest urban centers and tourist destinations.
  
The state Public Health Department is holding an informational meeting Wednesday in Boston as it plans to license marijuana dispensaries in counties that currently do not have a project in the pipeline.
  
Those seven counties cover Boston, the Fall River/New Bedford region and Springfield, as well as the Berkshires, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
  
Only four companies have initially been invited to apply: Coastal Compassion, JCS Holdings, Mass Medicum Corp. and Patriot Care Corp.
 
Those companies had proposed dispensaries in other counties but ultimately did not make the cut when regulators pared down an initial list of some 100 applicants to 20 in January, and then to 11 last month.
