A medical marijuana clinic is set to open Wednesday in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, becoming the first of its kind in the state of Illinois.

Good Intentions, located at 1723 North Ashland Avenue, is privately owned by Tammi Jacobi. Jacobi said the medical marijuana clinic will open on Wednesday, August 7, 2013, for consultation. Marijuana will not be distributed until the Illinois Compassionate Use Act Program Pilot goes into effect on January 1, 2014.

Illinois became the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana last week. Jacobi operates a similar clinic in Michigan.
