Another company is looking to open a medical marijuana dispensary in our area, if they are granted a license for a facility.

The company, Valley Agriceuticals — based just north of New York City — wants to bring a medical marijuana dispensary to Brighton.

Officials with the company were in town to talk about the plans for the “Origin Health Center.” If the company receives a license from the state, the facility would be located on Senator Keating Boulevard.

A handful of other companies have proposals for growing facilities and/or dispensaries that would be located in the Rochester area, including proposals in Gates, Eastman Business Park, Wolcott and Newark.

This month, the state is due to announce the companies who will be receiving one of five licenses for growing and dispensing medical marijuana.
