Illinois’ adult-use legalization regulation requires
present medical cannabis firms to be licensed to serve regular buyers
by the beginning of 2020, an particularly quick turnaround time between the
passage of legal guidelines and the beginning of exact commerce. Now, Crain’s Chicago Enterprise
critiques that
surprising factors are arising that will complicate the rollout of the state’s
adult-use commerce.

Beneath Illinois’ adult-use cannabis regulation, the
state’s medical cannabis dispensaries may apply for a license to advertise to
regular buyers at their present locations, along with for an additional
storefront. Nonetheless, the Crain’s report notes that the regulation didn’t take into consideration
some retailers making an attempt to maneuver to new locations ahead of the opening of the
adult-use market. Some firms are working into uncertain situations the place
native officers may or won’t approve permits for model new locations, whereas completely different
municipalities are banning adult-use cannabis firms altogether or don’t
however have pointers in place governing such commerce.

The Crain’s report quotes
state Senator Heather Stearns, co-author of Illinois’ adult-use cannabis regulation,
as saying that factors which have arisen given that passage of the distinctive
measure may probably be addressed in future legal guidelines. Nonetheless, evidently lots
is set by native governments implementing ordinances to accommodate enterprise
cannabis actions. In the event that they don’t, or are gradual to take motion, it’s doable that
all 110 potential adult-use retailers allowed beneath state regulation won’t be open for
enterprise come the start of subsequent 12 months.
