Recreational Cannabis Sales To Begin In Normal On Monday

May 8, 2020

People will be able to legally buy recreational cannabis in Normal for the first time starting Monday.

The dispensary formerly known as The Green Solution will reopen as Beyond / Hello, located at 501 W. Northtown Road, Normal. Doors will open for sales at 9 a.m. Monday.

The dispensary, which previously sold only medical cannabis, is now owned by Jushi, which operates the Beyond / Hello brand. It will now sell both medical and recreational cannabis. It will take orders over the phone or online for curbside or in-store pickup.

The state approved recreational sales at the Normal location in mid-March. Jushi previously expressed interest in locating a second store in Bloomington.

Since cannabis was legalized Jan. 1, McLean County residents looking to buy it have had to travel to Springfield, Peoria, Champaign-Urbana or elsewhere to find a dispensary.
