High fee proposed for marijuana dispensaries

Dispensaries granted a ­license to sell marijuana for medical use in Massachusetts will be required to pay a $50,000 annual fee under proposed regulations unveiled Friday by the state Department of Public Health.

The regulations, which also include a $50 annual registration fee for patients to use marijuana, is intended to create a “self-financed medical marijuana industry that supports ­patient access without relying on taxpayer resources,” the depart­ment said in a press ­release.
