Aurora Now Has Its First Marijuana Dispensary

Aurora Mayor Richard Irwin cut the ribbon at Zen Leaf Aurora on Tuesday morning. According to Zen Leaf, 38 jobs have been created at the dispensary, half of which are employed by people living in Aurora. After the opening ceremony, the clinic opened its doors to the public.

“I believe that our society needs the health, well-being and happiness that cannabis provides, and it deserves,” said Katie Vaughn.

“I have a new career in the cannabis industry because Aurora has taken decisive action to ensure that the community benefits from the legalization of cannabis,” added Damar Hampton.

The dispensary is located on Highway 59 in Aurora, right along the Naperville border and in the heart of the shopping district near the Fox Valley Mall.
