Illinois announces registration of 1st marijuana dispensary

Illinois regulators have announced the registration of the state’s first medical marijuana dispensary.
    
The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional announced Tuesday the first registered dispensary is called Harbory. It’s located in the southern Illinois city of Marion.

Harbory is under the company Terra Herbal Health.
    
Registration means the industry is one step closer to sales. But so far no growers have products to sell. Sales are expected later this year.
    
The dispensary in Marion has completed the state’s registration process including an inspection. It’s now licensed to operate when medical marijuana becomes available.
    
The department says dispensaries will continue to be registered on a rolling basis. Once approved, dispensary names and addresses will be posted on the department’s website.
    
Dispensary employees must be licensed under a separate process before a dispensary opens for business.
