A medical marijuana business that has been trying for more than four years to expand into Sandwich is finally getting ready to open its doors this spring.

The dispensary and its products will only be available to customers who have a medical marijuana card issued by a doctor, Mr. Noble said, adding that there are several doctors in the area who specialize in marijuana treatment.
The dispensary will sell smokable and edible products grown, processed and packaged at the company’s Brockton facility, which has been operating since 2015, Mr. Noble has said.

In Good Health has faced some hurdles in the four years since Mr. Noble approached the Sandwich selectmen with the idea of opening shop.
He and other company officials met informally with planning and other regulatory officials, attended several selectmen’s meetings, and escorted the police chief and other town officials on a tour of the Brockton
