Friday the first marijuana dispensary in Carbondale will open its doors to the public.

Consume Carbondale is the second site for what was known as The Harbory in Marion.

This marijuana dispensary is a recreation only store, so medical patients will not be able to switch to the Carbondale location.

General Manager Lori Ellis says COVID-19 restrictions changed how customers can makes purchases.

“The 2 things people need to remember is they need to go and do an online order before they come and they also need to make sure they’ve got their mask with them, because if they go inside the building they will have to have that mask on or we can not serve them.”

Customer will also be able to place their online order by scanning a QR code outside the building.
