The first medical cannabis dispensary in Illinois is now formally registered with the state.
The dispensary, called Harbory, is located in the southern Illinois town of Marion, closer to St. Louis and Nashville than Chicago. Although it has not announced an opening date – largely because cultivators are just starting to grow medical cannabis – the registration means the state inspection process is complete and Harbory can begin serving customers as soon as it obtains MMJ.
So far, at least seven out of Illinois’ 21 cultivators allowed by law have been given the green light to start growing cannabis, and at least one of those growers is currently tending plants. That means product could be available in a few months, and dispensaries could start opening by Thanksgiving.
