30 Illinois medical marijuana dispensaries issued ‘same-site’ licenses to sell weed, including 7 in Chicago

CHICAGO (WLS) — Thirty “same-site” recreational marijuana dispensary licenses have been issued in Illinois, all for medical marijuana dispensaries that are already operating. They will be the first to offer recreational sales on January 1, 2020.

The licenses are all subject to local zoning rules and other local laws, which means dispensaries like 3C Compassionate Care Center in Naperville will not be offering adult-use recreational sales even with their license, since Naperville voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana in the city.

Seven of the dispensaries are in Chicago. Others are in various locations around the state. Not all of the municipalities in which the dispensaries are located have made a final decision on whether or not to allow recreational sales.

The medical dispensaries that have been issued same-site licenses are also allowed under the law to open a second, recreational-only dispensary at a separate location.

In 2020, the state of Illinois will issue 75 adult use cannabis licenses to new applicants, including social equity applicants.
