4Front Ventures Corp. had its Mission dispensary located in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood will begin adult-use sales on Jan. 1, 2020.
Mission South Shore is scheduled to open at 6 a.m. and make one of Illinois’ first legal adult-use cannabis sales to Edie Moore, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and a positive force for the normalization of cannabis.
The Mission dispensary, located at 8554 S. Commercial Ave., will be the only cannabis retail store on the city’s Southeast Side. It has been serving its neighborhood as a medical cannabis dispensary since 2017.
“The opening will be a great moment for our company, Chicago, and Illinois,” said Kris Krane, president of 4Front and Mission, and a Chicago resident. “We are honored to be part of it, and also honored to serve Edie, who has worked tirelessly to bring an end to cannabis prohibition, as our first customer.”
He added: “We’ve served the South Shore neighborhood for more than two years and we look forward to continuing to serve our medical patients as we welcome new legal adult customers to our store.”
