Local dispensary aims to educate Quad City residents on Illinois medical marijuana program – KWQC-TV6

Milan, Ill. (KWQC) – Nature’s Treatment of Illinois has started holding public meetings, aiming to educate residents about the state’s medical marijuana program.

The next meeting will be held Tuesday, May 2. The Milan dispensary will host the event, but the meeting will be held at Stern Beverages, INC. (961 Tech Dr., Milan, Illinois).

The evening will start with application assistance at 5:30 p.m. for anyone interested in the program. After, open discussion will run from 6:30 – 7:30.

Staff told TV-6 the next meeting’s discussion topics would include micro-dosing and edibles. But, Nature’s Treatment also said they are open to other discussion topics as well.

The pilot program for Illinois’ medical marijuana program began back in 2013. Since, it has grown to include more conditions that are eligible for cannabis treatment.

Four years later, lawmakers are discussing legalizing the recreational use of the drug, something Operations Manager at Nature’s Treatment, Ron Glassner, said he expects.

“Its something that’s going to come,” said Glassner. “I’m not sure how soon that will happen. I don’t think this year yet, possibly next year.”

The Operational Manager also told TV-6 legalizing recreational use could potentially change their business, and mean a whole other storefront.

“Recreational marijuana I think will be good for our business, however, we will not mix the two together,” said Glassner. “In other words medical cannibals, this dispensary, will remain that way, and if recreational does pass, it would probably be a different type of storefront for that.”

For now, Nature’s Treatment is hoping to continue to these meetings monthly.
