Chicago's First Medical Marijuana Clinic Opens

Marijuana won't actually be distributed until January, though

|

A medical marijuana clinic opened Wednesday in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, becoming the first of its kind in the state of Illinois.

Good Intentions is located at 1723 North Ashland Avenue and is managed by a medical practice. There is no large, flashy sign outside the clinic—only a small one in a window that reads, "Medical marijuana may be right for you."

Good Intentions is privately owned by Tammi Jacobi, who said the clinic would open Wednesday for patient evaluations. Marijuana will not be distributed until the Illinois Compassionate Use Act Program Pilot goes into effect on January 1.
