Middletown's zoning board rejected a druggist's request to amend its regulations to allow pharmacies dispensing medical marijuana independence from grow plants on Wednesday, according to the Middletown Press.

Deep River pharmacist Kathy M. Kalista argued that that since pharmacies require federal licenses, they would be unable to dispense medical marijuana, the Press reports, however all but one commissioner voted against the proposal.

Last month, Kalista applied for a dispensary license with the state Department of Consumer Protection for Middlesex Dispensary LLC at 909 Newfield Street. Hancock Pharmacy on Main Street has applied as well, for a location in Meriden.

Also in Middletown, Greenbelt Management is hoping to become one of three medical marijuana producers granted a license from the state and open in a North End factory owned by the city of Middletown.

In August, Middletown's common council became the second municipality in Connecticut to green-light a lease for the palliative marijuana 15,000-square-foot grow house at 180 Johnson St., contingent on the firm being awarded licensure.
