Medical-cannabis dispensary to open in East Peoria

A medical-marijuana dispensary is to open early next month in East Peoria.

The NuMed dispensary is to occupy space the Fashion Bug women’s clothing store once filled at 504 Riverside Drive. It’s in a strip mall located next to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant.

The opening is scheduled for 11 a.m. Dec. 7, according to Ben Rediger, the NuMed consulting partner for public relations and patient/community outreach. Public previews are planned for next week.

“The community, I think, is ripe for more engagement on this,” said Rediger, who is based in Morton. “I think this location will drive it, because it’s next door to the busiest restaurant in the community. You have the Festival of Lights. You’ve got all the Christmas shopping.”
