The Vermont Department of Public Safety has conditionally approved the fourth and final medical marijuana dispensary in the state.
The approval is for Southern Vermont Wellness, which is to be located in Brattleboro.
The department says once the dispensary satisfies the stipulations set forth in the law, a registration certificate for operation will be issued. The dispensary should open within six months of approval.
The state legalized medical marijuana in 2004. Certificates for dispensaries have been issued in Burlington, Montpelier and Brandon.
