HULL – An application for a medical marijuana dispensary, grow house and manufacturing center that drew fierce support and opposition in Hull is getting a little more palatable to residents.
Sean Power, co-owner of Latitude 42, said during a meeting Wednesday night that he is dropping the grow house and manufacturing from his proposal for the former Atlantic Aquarium at 121 Nantasket Ave. Instead, the building would house only a medical marijuana dispensary.
Power said the company found a location in the western part of the state to grow and manufacture marijuana.
Medical marijuana dispensaries must be vertically integrated, meaning they must grow and manufacture any marijuana products they sell. Recreational marijuana dispensaries can buy and sell products from other companies.
Power said he has been in talks with the town’s attorney, Jim Lampke, about how to move forward with the application. The board voted to consider it complete in February, which triggered a series of deadlines.
Power is trying to get the town to start negotiations on a community host agreement, the first step in the process of getting approval from the state Cannabis
