BETHEL - The owners of a company awarded a license to run a medical marijuana dispensary say that they will be opening one in Bethel.

D&B Wellness tried unsuccessfully to open a dispensary in Bridgeport and Stratford. The dispensary in Bethel will reportedly go on Garella Road.

Bethel officials say they essentially had no choice but to approve the application because it was well within zoning regulations for the building.

The owners say the clinic will be called Compassionate Care Center of Connecticut. They hope to open their doors in the late summer or early fall.
