A marijuana dispensary is set to open at the end of February in Galena, IL, just 15 minutes from Dubuque.

The shop will be located at 115 Perry Street, downtown and only a block from the shopping area that attracts people from around the midwest.

A Dubuque Police Department spokesperson said the location of the dispensary creates an unusual situation for them, being they are only a bridge away from both Wisconsin and Illinois, which both have different laws regarding marijuana.

“If you choose to go over there, residents should understand that once you come back into Dubuque, it’s still illegal in Iowa,” said Lieutenant Ted McClimon of the Dubuque Police Department. He added that people in Dubuque who get caught with marijuana will be prosecuted criminally.

If you do decide to go, bring a Front Door with you.
