Non-profit Looks for Support from Wareham Selectmen for Pot Dispensary

Israel Pioneers Use Of Medical MarijuanaWAREHAM – A medicinal marijuana dispensary could be coming to Wareham. Representatives from the non-profit organization Compassionate Care Clinics are looking for approval to open a business and made a presentation to the Board of Selectmen last week.

The organization, which was represented by CEO Michelle Stormo, CFO David Aubrey and Director of Security Robert Sylvester, asked the board to sign a letter of support or non-opposition.

The board could make a final decision as early as tonight.

Stormo said the organization will donate net revenues back to the community.

“We at Compassionate Care Clinics do not see Plymouth County as a market any more than we consider the patients who would have legal prescriptions as customers,” she said. “Our operating proposal has earmarked funds for community-based drug education, drug abuse prevention and public safety concerns.”

Stormo said he believes a well-managed and highly secure dispensary will actually become an asset to the town if the right company is selected.

“Some of these out of state companies will reap enormous financial awards with minimal investment back into the communities where they are taking this profit,” she said.

Stormo said the organization is committed to use the profits to fund chronically underfunded programs.

Compassionate Care Clinics would also working with local law enforcement to identify public safety concerns, according to Stormo.

The proposed dispensary would lease about 40,000 to 50,000 square feet of property and would soon be able to employ about 50 people.
