CHICAGO (SCS) — The next round of licenses to sell pot in Illinois is being issued.
The state is distributing 185 new adult-use dispensary licenses to applicants selected in three sweepstakes last year. The first wave of conditional licenses will be distributed no later than Friday.
There will be two more waves of marijuana licenses issued no later than August 5 and August 19. Applicants must complete their compliance checks before they can obtain their licenses.
The courts recently lifted the suspensions that prevented the issuance of licenses.
