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.
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.
