About the New Effingham Location

The Effingham location is in the heart of central Illinois and is adjacent to the intersection of two major interstate highways: I-57 and I-70. Located approximately 50 miles North West of the original intended location in Lawrenceville, IL, the new location is within minutes of the Keller Drive exit and entrance ramps which provide full on-off interstate access in all directions. The Effingham location is located in a high traffic regional business and retail district with several major big box retailers within minutes.

Effingham is a micropolitan center that draws workers from an 8 county area and has a trade population of 175,000. Being a regional center, people travel to Effingham to work, shop, and for their healthcare needs. As a result, patients can incorporate dispensary visits into other business that they have in the immediate area making the suitability of this location ideal for patients throughout the region. Being adjacent to a Veteran’s Affairs Clinic will also provide convenient access for an important patient group.

The location is approximately 3,400 square feet and is designed to be secure, efficient, and promote safe dispensing of medical cannabis. Members of the public will not be given access to the retail area of the dispensary, and dispensary agents will closely monitor patient flow, all of which will ensure that patients are safe and comfortable when engaging in their transactions in the retail area.

The proposed site has two designated handicapped parking spaces within fifty feet of the entrance. There is also a ramp for easy wheel chair access. The proposed site is new construction and fully ADA compliant.
