Humphrey noted that a number of legal issues need to be worked out before things get going. “We will only be a dispensary for already established patients,” she said. “It’s like having a Quik Mart in a well-traveled area. Patients can pick up their order here without having to go into the downtown area. We have plenty of parking and we’re right off the Eisenhower, so we’re really convenient.”
Legally, the Bead In Hand location needs to be identified separately from the parent business, and will have its own name, Weed In Hand.
Humphrey pointed out that the Arts District in Oak Park is also home to a number of “wellness” type businesses, including Inner Arts Studio, Oak Park Fitness Trainer, CrossFit Spiro, Whispers from the Moon, and others. “Many people are attracted to the healing properties of natural stones, and we’re obviously well equipped to help with that as well,” she said. “Some patients may find more healing benefits by getting ‘naturally’ stoned. It just all makes sense.”
Bead In Hand is located in the Oak Park Arts District, at 145 Harrison Street. Humphrey couldn’t say exactly when the new service would start, though they hope to be rolling by 4/20. Interested persons are encouraged to stay alert to the news. Updates will also be on-line, and even though the weedinhand.com website isn’t functioning yet, the information will be available at the beadinhand.com site.
