Company officials target early September opening for area patients
Wheaton, IL – Officials with NuMed today announced permitting plans have been filed with the City of Urbana to commence construction of the region’s second medical marijuana dispensary. The NuMed Urbana dispensary will be located at 105 East University Avenue.
“We are excited to get the construction phase of NuMed Urbana underway,” said NuMed Chief Executive Officer Bob Fitzsimmons. “The time is right to move forward as Illinois’ medical cannabis program is maturing and qualified patients need relief. NuMed’s patient-centered, health-focused approach will offer patients who need access to effective medical cannabis a safe place to go.”
Fitzsimmons is confident in NuMed’s entrance into the Champaign-Urbana market, noting that enrollment in Illinois’ medical cannabis program continues to grow as more patients and health care professionals recognize the benefits of medical cannabis for state-approved illnesses and conditions. NuMed partners with the best available medical cannabis producers in Illinois to provide the safest and most effective medicines possible for area patients. These product offerings will be highlighted as NuMed’s grand opening in Urbana approaches.
Assuming a timely and successful state inspection, NuMed plans to open around Labor Day in September.
