After years of delays, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (DFPR) has announced the state’s first medical marijuana dispensary.
The dispensary, Harbory, will be located at 8195 Express Drive in Marion, which is approximately 300 miles south of Chicago. The dispensary is licensed for operation and can open at anytime. Currently there is no known open date.
“Illinois medical cannabis dispensaries will continue to be registered on a rolling basis,” said the DFPR in a statement. “Illinois medical cannabis dispensaries will receive medical cannabis exclusively from Illinois’ licensed growing facilities once it becomes available.”
A dispensary named Nature’s Treatment is currently under construction in Milan, which is in western Illinois, near Davenport, Iowa.
The DFPR mentioned that dispensaries will continue to be registered on a rolling basis. Once approved, names and addresses of dispensaries will be made available to the public.
