Medical Marijuana Dispensary Coming To East Peoria

By Nick Vlahos of the Journal Star


This city is to be the site of a medical marijuana dispensary.

NuMed Rx of Wheaton intends to open a dispensary at 2530 E. Washington St., according to a news release the Journal Star obtained Thursday morning. The local partner is Dan Joseph, a Peoria chiropractor.

Licenses were allocated earlier this week. Until Thursday, the location of NuMed's dispensary wasn't released publicly.

It's one of two dispensaries to be located in the Illinois State Police district that includes Marshall, Peoria, Stark, Tazewell and Woodford counties. The other is set for Peoria, in a strip mall at 3125 N. University St.

"Suffering patients who desperately need access to medical cannabis products will finally have a place to go that is safe and health-oriented," Joseph stated in the release.

Delavan will be the site of the Peoria-area state police district's only medical marijuana cultivation center.
