Nature’s Treatment of Illinois in Galesburg was originally supposed to be open at this time last year, but the grand opening was delayed because of the pandemic.
GALESBURG, Ill. — Tuesday felt like a party outside Nature’s Treatment of Illinois in Galesburg, as the business and customers mark the unofficial holiday 4/20, celebrated annually on April 20th.
Customers say celebrating the holiday, especially in the second year of legalized recreational marijuana in Illinois, is important to them.
“It’s just having fun, chilling with people and having a good time,” Customer Tyshawn Hightower says.
“It makes me happy because marijuana has helped me a lot, with a lot of things I’m going through,” Customer Martha Taylor says.
It’s the dispensary’s first time open on April 20th because their grand opening was delayed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Live music, food trucks and sales were available throughout the day in celebration of 4/20.
“We just wanted to make it special,” NTI of Galesburg Manager Victoria Kline says. “We want to celebrate. We’re so excited to be here and we love cannabis.”
