Video: First Look Inside the Future Medical Marijuana Center in Portsmouth
The Department of Health has approved an application to open a medical marijuana facility in Portsmouth. On Wednesday, we took a first look at where the facility will be located.
On Tuesday, the Department of Health approved an application by Dr. Seth Bock to open a "compassion center," or medical marijuana center, in Portsmouth.
On Wednesday, Patch was granted an inside look at where one of the state's first medical marijuana centers will be housed.
Bock, who owns and operates the Newport Acupuncture and Wellness Spa in Middletown, intends to open a non-profit medical marijuana center at 200 Highpoint Ave., Unit B-6.
The center will be located next to R.B. Queen & Co., a home heating company, and the High Point Salon and Spa.
The 60 x 40 sq. ft. leased space still requires cleaning and renovation. A boat and car are still parked inside the unit.
Featured here is a video of the future Greenleaf Compassionate Care Center.
The official opening date is still unknown, according to Bruce Vanicek, one of the center's principals. The center must still be inspected by the Department of Health staff, as well as receive a certificate of occupancy from the Town of Portsmouth.
