MILFORD - The state has announced it will add three new medical marijuana dispensaries, two of which are in Milford.

One of the sites will be located at 318 New Haven Ave., and the other is a six-minute drive away, at 255 W. River St.

In addition to those two, a third dispensary will be opened in Waterbury. They are expected to begin serving patients by early summer.

The state says the facilities were chosen based on several factors, including the applicant's experience, business plan and security features.

Only state residents who are at least 18 and registered to use medical marijuana will be able to buy there.

Connecticut's medical marijuana program reports that it has nearly 2,000 registered patients in Fairfield County, and more than 2,100 in New Haven County.
