Medical Marijuana Facility Opens in Naperville

The 3C Compassionate Care Center held an open house for visitors.

3C is the first medical marijuana dispensary located in Naperville.

Struggling through a medical condition herself, Traci Fernandez, her husband and father, set out to help people who struggle through chronic health conditions.

“It helps people with a wide variety of needs, right now it helps people who are chronically and terminally ill- from cancer to ALS, to spinal cord injuries to Multiple Sclerosis is one we’re seeing a lot of,” said Traci Frenandez, Co-Founder of 3C Compassionate Care Center.

Visitors were able to look around the facility, located on Quincy Avenue, as well as learn more about which medical conditions are currently approved for the use of medical marijuana.

20 percent of 3C’s profits in Naperville, and their other facility in Joliet, will go toward helping find a cure for paralysis.

The doors will officially open for business on February 4.
