Medical marijuana dispensary to answer questions at public forum


CHAMPAIGN - Champaign's first medical marijuana dispensary will open soon and you may be afforded the opportunity to ask them questions directly.

Phoenix Botanical plans to open on South Neil Street in April. The storefront is now under construction. There is still a lot of work to be done. The company must pass a state inspection, vet, and hire employees.

"We're hoping to open up and provide a safe and legal outlet for these patients to get access to this medicine and serving the greater East-Central Illinois region," said Dan Linn of Phoenix Botanical.

They're quick to point out people can only use medical cannabis if they've passed a background check and have a doctor's approval.

Several public forums are planned. The first one will take place from 2 PM - 4 PM at the Champaign library.
